Hi Mela,
Oh I hate to hear you are having a flare. Can you get into your dr right away? I too am having terrible problems with swelling, starts at my knees and goes into my ankle. I am going to start on lasix today. It really hurts to walk when they are swollen like this. I am not sure what brought on all this swelling. I wake up and they are swollen and go to bed and they are swollen. I gained 2 lbs in one day from retaining so much fluid.

Hope you can get into dr and start feeling better soon. Let us know.

Susie

eyes   I'm so sorry to hear your'e feeling bad. I am also in the middle of a flare right now..I'm the pity party thread..lol.

The swelling is miserable, I too puff up like a toad when I flare up.

Hopefully, you have meds to ease the pain and don't have to go anywhere so you can rest, oh and remember moist heat helps a bit.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Hi Mela,

My ortho said if the pump took care of my knees great, but if not then I will be looking at knee replacements, both knees.The only thing the pain pump has done for my knees is make me realize how bad they really are. When I was having so much pain everywhere else, I knew my knees were very stiff, swollen and they hurt. But once I got the pain level down, I really realized just how bad they actually are. I had an appt w/ortho Tues and felt too bad to go. I have to call & get an appt. But, I sort of have my own plan. I have a pool here at my home and I want get in it and exercise these knees to see if I can build them up somehow. My PCP is in total agreement, along with pain mgt dr. But, now I have to wait for this cyst thing to heal up, before that it was the incisions in my back and stomach from having the pain pump put in. Its hard for me to get up & down out of a chair, in & out of a car, up & down stairs, walking in my yard is instant bad pain, the uneveness kills me, up & down off the pot, walking very much, I mean I walk with a cane but I am really limited with these knees.It wouldn't be so bad if it was one knee but I couldn't have been that lucky. If I set very long its excruciating to try and stand up.

My sister in Oklahoma has begged me not to have any more surgery for at least a year. She says I need to give my body time to heal from all of the surgeries I have had in the past 12 months and I agree with her. I have had surgery on both knees and then the pump put in in the past 12 months so I really believe I need time. Plus, I am not sure I have my head on right about the knee replacements, and thats a must anytime you are in need of surgery.

What about you, can you get into your dr with this flare or do you have meds to take to try and get it under control? Let me know. Hugs & love, Susie

Hey everybody sorry so many people are having a rough time. I will help erin paddle for everyone also. The steriods are the only thing that takes down the swelling for me, too. Hope tomorrow is better for everyone and you all get some sleep.
