The orthopedist put a shot of cortizone in my replacement knee, and now that I've rested up from the gardening yesterday, my other knee doesn't hurt either! The doctor was all for my taking glucosamine and said "Keep it up!"
He scheduled me for an outpatient surgery in a couple of weeks on the other knee, but because it's been so much better the past few days, I am going to call and postpone that. We have so many things going on in June, and I don't want to miss a thing!
I'm telling you, you should try out glucosamine/chondroitin. You have to give it two or three weeks to start working, but if it doesn't help you, you aren't out anything but the price of the pills. And why go on hurting if there's a possibility it might help? Yes, even if it's all in your head.
I got out of bed this morning without limping.
