    Now I'm having some pain on the outside and front of operative knee. PT gave me some more quad stretches and hamstring stretches. Cold weather is definitely taking a toll. Baker's cyst is gone so can walk longer just trying to lose weight now.

    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.
