 So, I went to see the physio today and he actually asked me how i was and if i felt like the treatment was working. I told him that no, i didn't think it was helping at all and that the pain was getting worse, it keeps trying to seize up if i stand or sit for too long and lets out loud cracks when this happens.

He told me that he didn't like the fact that it's getting worse and this time he treated it differently. He massaged it - which hurt even more than his yanking it about - and the put a really hot pad on it for about 15 minutes. I think it helped in the short term a little but by the time i got home it was back to normal.

He wants to see me again in two weeks and then he is going to write to my consultant. I get the feeling i won't have to go again after that. I think the letter will be recommending that i get put on the knee replacement list as i won't see the consultant again until June.

I won't be telling work this, as far as they are concerned i will be going next week and for the next two like i told them. I only post on Facebook and Twitter what i want them to know - i have lots of people i work with on there, including two managers. My journals are the only places safe from them ... thankfully they wouldn't even think of looking for me here. They even found me on Pintrest!

They are really not helping with my stress levels at work!
 I really don't want to have to go sick before the op but i refuse to end up like I did last time when i was carrying on as usual and it ended up in agony. it collapsed three times and had to take 3 weeks off!

I hope you get on the waiting list quickly.

My neighbour across the road just had her knee replaced last saturday. She's been home a couple of days and is getting around on crutches, and she's over 60.

OH man, that's awful, I'm sorry it's getting worse :((( Prob best to keep it quiet as long as possible.

And UGH that work isn't helping your stress :(((

I think you'll do just fine, you're a strong person, and determined, and that's the type of attitude you need to heal quickly.
