    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.
    Using weed based salve daily. Very helpful.
    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.

    Running is my favorite exercise but row and bike more lately. Hope to run 3-4 times a week. Have been running close 18 miles a week with a goal of 20 plus. Started periodic hill work and intervals.

    Running in cushioned shoes Brooks Ghost 12?”, Hoka Rincon and now New Balance Beacons and using still experimenting with lightweight arch supports. Like lightweight running shoes and the Superfeet fill Up the shoes for my feet. Only use NSAIDs periodically. Taking Instant Flex and Curcumin.
