Tamar - Thanks so much for your kind words to me about conversion. I know that it is a very BIG deal and don't want to rush into it. However, I feel like I've been sitting on the fence for three years and maybe it would be good to to a Pros & Cons list and search my heart and talk with some clergy. Thanks so much!
On another note - best of all to you on your surgery!! I hope that the doctors do everything precisely and effectively so that you can be in and out and heal as fast as possible!!
Tamar the problems with knees OHH the pain!
I have had a knee replacement done last year and am so happy that I did but getting ready for it wow.
How many pounds are they suggesting that you lose before they will do the surgery? If exercise is so difficult for you but you are able to use your bike - bike away. I started out lasting about ten minutes but stayed with it and now do three to five miles. Don't gasp it took time to do that. I would follow up each session with ice off and on for several hours so the pain was not terrible.
Be determined, stay focused and that new knee will come your way soon. 2287 days ago
Hi Tamar, I also have a long list of medical conditions and prescriptions that I take for them. I do feel much better when I exercise. The problem is the when I exercise. I also have fibromyalgia and I give in to easily to the pain and stop the exercising. I need to continue and work through it. Reading your story motivated me to click you on as a friend so I will keep at my exercising for my own good. Thanks. 2436 days ago
