Well, finealy had my "stress test last friday.... not at all impressed! Some of you may recall my stating that my knee was just about killing me most of the summer.....well through going to one doctor that did everything but look at the knee, referred me to a heart specialist, who gave me the old stress test....everything is great.....something which I felt was true right along....bet you could never guess what this "specialist" told me to do......he said, and I quote, "you need to excercise more, walk at least a mile, twice a day......" I know I'm stupid.... but, somebody missed the point......how can I walk when I can hardly stand????? Guess maybe I could use the quad.......must have been something lost in translation....have a gooder, R.E.L.

Folks when I started having sore joints I gimped and eased around for years then I quit taking arthritis medicine and started taking glucosimin & chondrotin(I know that aint spelled right).

It took about 3-4 weeks to realize they were working but the soreness went out of my joints. The elbows and knee joints had got to the point that just light pressing the joint with my finger tip sent a sharp tear filled pain.

I checked with my cut man Dr and he said the clinic trials show that the chondrotin stuff actually replaces the cartlage in the joints.

It might would help some of yall it sho has helped me.

He also said red meat has bad effects on joints so I been baiting some house cats up. Cats are easier to chum up than squirrels.

Dang Burrhead you reckon this here glosimin and the other thing you said you were taking would make a man want to eat a cat. What's a cat taste like? I saw a super-bowl commercial one year where some cowboys was a herdin cats. Was that taken down in yer neck of the woods? What kind of fence, or brandin iron would a body use? I can see burrhead a ropin a cat, I'll probably dream about this. I'd like to see a picture of you ropin one if you can put on the board. RITFLMBO LOOLOLOLOLOOLOOL This has made my day. Take care.

Hey Dr.Burr...what can I say about docs? these days I'm there just about every day, in between neddles and some more pils we tell jokes and laugh a lot. But I have to say I get a better kick out of laughing here at the board.

Yeah Drs can be a PITA but dying aint to appealing either.

I have a orthopedic surgeon I've used for 10-12 years now and a chiropracter I knew when he went away to college.

Both them Drs live in town and love to hunt. I let both of them hunt on my property so I get a deal on Dr visits.

Ma Burr says I just aint right the way I do them fellers. When the chiro comes out to hunt I lay down on my pickup tailgate and get him to pop my back.

He had a yuppie chiro buddy with him last year that got embarrassed when we did the tailgate back adjustment but my chiro Dr just laffed and told him "at least we're not at Walmart's like we were last time I ran across him".

got plenty of cats around here. you is welcome to come get 'em, dr. burr. i hear they make good tamales. seriously, i cut out red meat completly and noticed a great improvement in my knees. now i can move around better, faster and hardly any pain. i hear some doctors say that fish like salmon, tuna and shark is also good because it helps replace some of the cartlidge. let me know how the cat idea works out, burr. might be sumthing to it. ha ha ha.

Thanks for all the input, everyone, I realy appreciate it....and a special to "DR Burr"! have been taking glucosimine chondroitin for about four years now, started with one tablet.....woke up to the fact that that dose would be for someone of about a hundred pounds....so uped it to four tablets...I realy think it has helped, but not as much as I have heard it help others, so the last two mornings I took five capsules, new stuff, and just now took six.....will do this for awhile and see what happens....this is exactly what the Doctor was doing with water pills, just experimenting....I can do that too, found an off the shelf diaretic pill that does the same thing and costs about a quarter as much! the wife and youngest daughter are going to specialized weight loss clinic in Calgary that specializes in loosing weight by exactly what you eat as an individual according to blood type and not on how much..... those two have lost a lot of weight and the wifes legs have finaly gone down to the point where you can see the shape instead of all the fluid, and I can sure feel the difference in how I feel generaly....and am still eating GOOD meals at no extra cost....just diet change, and herbal remedies.....thanks to all again, have a gooder, R.E.L.

Grove r ye git caught in the Catch 22 on weight vs pain.

I did'nt start adding pounds til my joints started hindering my mobility. Then the more I hurt the more weight I gain no matter how little or what type foods I eat.

I started out taking 2-3 pills aday and that did'nt do much good. I take 3 morning and 3 evening now and they have helped.

I may get with Hay and open a taco stand out on the freeway. He's got cats and I got ambition.8^)

I'm no Dr but... My dad had both his knees replaced nearly 5 years ago. They were in terrible condition due to a head on collision accident when he was 21 (now 71. I grew up watching him live in pain for ovcr 40 years. Finally he can move about freely without pain. He does whatever he wants driving autos tractors, walking and often comments about how he wishes the technology was avsilable a long time ago. You may want to discuss knee replacement with your Dr.

I tell ya...    Posted 11-14-2002 at 04:09:01       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Last spring my right knee was killing me and about once a day it would just 'pop' and give out to the point of almost falling down.
I hate doctors so I tried to figure it out myself.
I looked back at what had changed in the month or so that it had been real bad. I found the answer in my 'new' truck.
It was the lack of back support in the seat that was doing it.
Now every time I hop in I stuff a rolled up towel at the base of my spine and just above my butt.
My knee 'healed' in a week.

Not saying that this is your problem, but if you are convinced it is not 'physical' then I would start looking at 'structural' reasons...if that makes sense...

:-)

That's a good point, I can usually drive twice as long before my hips start bothering me with one of those new seats with a hump in the back of them. All I need to do is get out and walk around the car a couple of times but it can get painfull before I do though.

i hear ya. i had knee problems too and the dumba** doctor said i need more exercise. heck, how much more exercise does a hay farmer need? seems like everytime i go there they want to jab a needle in me for something. got me a bottle of absorbine and started using it everyday and it helps more than anything. sometimes i think doctors do more harm than good or at least it seems like it.

For me, it was arthritis medicine--Indocin or
Lodine XL. (I have a tough stomach) Knee problems after carrying 4 babies.
Anyway, I, too had to give up a mini-van
for a car. The hopping up to get in never allowed
my knee, back, and hip to heal from a fall.
When I could give up the arthritis meds, then
Alleve took over. Now, I learn to lift and
carry better.
