    This is my 4th ACL tear in 25 years, all have been in adulthood. After this recent one it was suggested I have further evaluation for a connective tissue disorder. It turns out I have a disorder which significantly reduced the chances of any ACL surgery every working. As a result of the surgeries, I have developed severe osteoarthritis. I am in a brace and suffer from horrible knee pain. I have done visco supplements, and a genicular nerve block. I am currently in a physical therapy program and pursuing a knee replacement.

    The stretching on this program and shoe inserts have helped a lot. Tessie has been a blessing.

    Update: I am doing so much better. The program was such a struggle at first. That is not true anymore. In addition to this wonderful program having the great and small saphenous veins lasered away has really made a great difference also.

    Limits me to the point of others doing things before I get to do them. Bending down is tough. Unable to wade for fishing. Have been somewhat lax in exercises the past week. Back on track now. More exercising seems to be helping me quite a bit.

    Just looked into stem cell treatment for my knee. Will keep you advised next month. Any experience you have with it would be appreciated.Not going to go the stem cell route because I know who the bright looking fella with the arrow in his back is. HE'S A PIONEER.

    The more I exercise my knee the better it gets. Seem to be at a plateau, but with so little pain it's hard to evaluate. Stepping up is the only problem and that is not every time. More exercise!!

    The past week up until today has been tough. Lots of stiffness in my knee after sitting for more than20 minutes. Also there is a new location of some pain-The inside of my knee. Betting you have a new exercise to help with that. Come on warmer weather!! Cardio rehab is helping my overall strength and my knee as well, not to mention my wellbeing.
