I was out in Ca. last mnth 1st stop was a hole in the wall Taco shop, had to come home and get a fill and get back on track!! I do Miss southern Ca , but love the seasons out here and my daughter and grandkids are here so here I will stay


    Thanks! I did a little happy dance myself, in my mind as i have bad knees. I was born and raised in southern Ca. Just moved to the midwest about 7 yrs ago Ramona, CA


    Almost shed a few tears, was surprised at how it hit me.

    Hey 50 & over gang We have a new spot

    The Gal in the bed next to me had both hers done at once so ther are Docs that will do it! It is a tough surgery, but now the knee is good. I am hoping to get the rest of the weight off , wishful thinking that I won't have to get the other knee done. I am going to look into the injections that are supposed to replace the bad cartlidge(sp?) Have you heard anything about these?

    Hey 50 & over gang We have a new spot

    I had right knee replacement a little over a year ago,(with success) and wish i would have had both done at once, now don't want to go have the other done. Just a thought
  14. This was the hardest time for me . It took 5 fills to get restriction, but you will get there!! It is very hard not to get discouraged, but just hang in there, it takes awhile to get there!!
  15. I am at 5.5 CC in 9CC realize band and still waiting for restriction (impatiently) can eat anything and have no problems with anything which is not good. next fill in 2 weeks and am hoping to get some restriction soon!!
