    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!!
