Hi Janet,
Welcome to SparkPeople and to this particular team. I hope you will find lots of support and encouragement from SparkPeople. Bear with your pain as best you can and do what you can to control it - try whatever works for you such as physiotherapy, massage therapy, chiropractic care. And when your pain gets intolerable, insist that your doctor send you to an orthopedic specialist. I will never regret having had my total hip replacement - prior to having it done I was in pretty bad shape, I know I was headed for a wheelchair soon and did not want that to happen. Now I have a knee that concerns me so my ortho specialist will let me know what is going on there when I see him at the end of August.
Take care Janet.

Hi my name is Janet and I just joined SparkPeople 2 weeks ago. I'm still learning my way around the site. I live in Jackson Mississippi. I'm 56 years old and have been struggling with my weight for years.I have arthritis in my joints and have some kind of pain everyday. I've been slowly working my way up to exercising a little more each day. I manage to get in my 180 steps each day in spite of my knees. It's slow going but at this point any movement is better than no movement at all.
