Thanks for the arthritis link. Just read 11 jExercises to Decrease Knee Pain. Am doing almost all of them in physical therapy. And I so happy to report that today I was able to ride the bike for 10 minutes. That's a first since my surgery! When he had me try 4 weeks ago, my knee couldn't handle even one revolution.

What a motivator! And to think I almost cancelled my appointment this morning because of heavy rain. So glad I made myself get up and go!

Welcome to the team! I have knee issues also, when my weight is down it is so much better. You will find just a small change can help. I agree with everyone else, there is a wealth of information on this site to help you make the changes you need to in order to be healthy. There are a couple of articles about arthritis and knee pain you might want to read.

Here is a link to the arthritis section:

Hello, I joined the team today. I am 57. I had meniscal surgery 5 weeks ago so now I've had the same surgery on both the right and the left knees. My doctor mentioned that I do have arthritis on the upper end of fair heading to moderate in both knees also. I can feel it.

I've dieted unsuccessfully before and on SP also. But this time I really want my knees to feel better. Too much pressure with each step especially with stairs. I want to go back to the activities that I enjoy. Right now I'm only doing physical therapy and some walking.

I hope to learn more and change my mindset to a healthier one for life.
