OK new day new dilemma....

Going later in the week for an MRi on a knee I had surgery on 2 years ago.... was told then that the knee would likely need replacing in 5-15 years....(so will my truck by the way). Long time frame to consider this. This MRI is a follow up from that surgery....I am afraid that I may need a new knee...this sucks... I do not have time for this...

You don't have time to NOT do this. Unless you have time to hobble around in pain with limited activity in every activity you want to be really active in. Make the time. Living with the increasing pain and decreasing mobility is silly. have the replacement, do the therapy, and get on with your life. Might look into Chiropractic wellness care to see if there's something less invasive they can do to help buy you more time until the inevitable.

I do see a Chiro on a regular basis.. i have for over 20 years and it has prolonged many things for me and repaired others... or at least make them tolerable.
Pain can be good for me and I have a high tolerance to it...lets me know I am alive still. The doc told me yesterday that he wants to hold off for awhile on his decision.. I have been working out and losing weight which may help for awhile. Hard as I am a big man normally. Thanks tho.. liked hearing from you
