I cannot believe what is going on. again. I had back surgery in 2001 and that was such an awful surgery not long after that I had gall bladder removed. I had my deformed foot operated on last year also. I have been suffering from severe pain in my legs/ elbow and back and my knee. The knee thing is really effecting me now as It is causing extreme shooting pain at times when I go walking which has me apprehensive about walking / exercising. I used to be so in shape. but on and off recoveries have made it hard to keep that up.

My intentions are there. I needed a break from a surgery I hate recovery and pain associated with that. But since my knee is serious pain now I decided to go get checked out. My hips I thought were also hurting me I found out the reason for this pain is I have severe arthritis in my knee and very bad in my lower back in around the place I had back surgery before. This is so disappointing to find out At least if it was a tendon or a muscle I could do pt or something. But I have to look forward to a knee surgery very soon and see how long I can endure the pain my arthritis is causing me in my spine before I pursue that. I dont have anyone to take care of me or help me. I cant afford to pay someone and make too much money to qualify for help, I have family but they all have jobs .. I live alone and really and not sure how to handle this. All I can see is surgery recovery pain again.. the pain has been constant now for about 7 months.
