Thank you both for the warm welcome! ^^ I'm really glad to find a great group like this.
As for your questions...
I have had another doctor look at my knee, a few years ago, because the pain got worse. Turns out I had patella femoral pain syndrome. They also took an xray and told me that I'm developing arthritis.
I've been very careful with my knee since then, sticking to low impact aerobics. My favorite way to exercise so far has been deep water aerobics. It's a great workout and so easy on my knee. My problem now is that I don't have access to a pool at the moment. I'm trying to fiddle with my budget so I can join a gym sometime soon.
Pain management has been more of a problem. I took IBUprofen for 4 years almost every day, and it tried to destroy my stomach. So I have to be careful about which painkillers I take and I just shouldn't really take IBUprofen ever again. So, I take the occasional aspirin. : (
I haven't seen anyone lately, since nothings changed. I'm waiting to see how my new exercise plan works before I go talk to my doctor.
