Hello, I'm Bron. I have had chronically horrible osteo for decades and I have only 2-3 years to get a replacement/s. Until then I run a little urban block full of edibles. I would like to see other peoples knees and maybe work with people creatively to show and tell a broader 'audience' about those little weight bearing pegs many people take for granted. The pain, exhaustion, challenges and humour are obviously in this forum, but I want people to look at the knees attached to the human beans who manage to endure.... I generally guffaw when specialists tell people to lose weight and exercise more. Just do not put on muscle?

Good ideas? Is this a good idea? Here are my knees. I used to have beautiful knees which carried me across continents, held up children, took dogs for runs, operated a bike, a potters wheel and many trolleys / carts / wheelbarrows. I miss my beautiful knees. They are still strong, but, they hurt like heck!

Hi Bron

You do indeed have beautiful knees at least compared to mine.

Maybe you would like to share some of your experiences and treatments you have tried,maybe to assist others and maybe somebody can suggest other possibilities to look at.

Just a thought. Every little bit helps, mostly

Warm regards from Ron

Silly me

I thought an "Urban block of edibles" referred to all those people who has made life miserable for us.s

Perhaps I should stop talking to trees, the advice they have given me so far has been rather wooden.

Thanks Ron, what a kind reply. As a matter of fact, the knees are doing a bit better with a sorta successful ''regime'' starting to kick in at last. I will post now. I do like the "every little bit helps, mostly " comment. Ah yes, that's this World of pain we live in... much appreciated. ..Bron

But, yes, talk to the trees... bushes, flowers, even the ants who are defending the scale you are about to squash.. I will get the yoke when I wake up. Many thanks again.... brono
