Well I was hoping to make it to end of riding season but don't think I can make it. I go to Dr for another shot in my knee on the 29th. I'm going to see when I can get it done. The way it's been lately the sooner the better. The knee makes the hip I screws in hurt and not letting it heal and is starting to be harder to stand up from chair and to sit. Pain pills I have aren't touching it very well. Terri and I have talked about it and decided it's time to get it done. I'm ready to be as pain free ads possible.

We ride for enjoyment and to relax, not to be in pain. Do what you need to do and know that our thoughts and prayers for a speedy and full recovery are with you.

Hey Mike, I heard some where on the news that they are about to release a plastic (actually close to a contact lens) that can be inserted into the knee joint thru a tiny incision.  If it is true it is about time.  My hope is I can make it to that day.  If not then this winter a new knee.

 

Here is the link.

That sounds like it will help a lot of people that have been putting it off. But I can't wait for it, maybe when the other one goes bad. I've already put it off to long.
