An option I have been considering recently.  ::)
Had an appointment with a surgeon to discuss the possibility of replacing my right knee joint. The info I gave him led to him to believe I may have infection inside the bone in my lower leg, and it if so it has ben there since I had compound fractures 12/10 1976 !! :o
He sent me for an MRI scan to determine this, as it should light up like a Christmas tree on the scan.
The scan was inconclusive because it was masked by the fact that the muscle on the outside of the lower leg is extremely calcified which apparently didn't allow them to see what else is going on.
Back for another scan with an injection of dye first.
This showed there is indeed a lot of infection living inside the bone which means the knee joint cant be replaced until this is removed.
I thought this might mean a course of strong antibiotics, but no.
It involves cutting a hole in the bone and scooping the infection out, then probably packing it with antibiotic pellets.
Then we can talk about knee joint replacement.
I'm thinking that whatever state its in, it has stopped me from falling over for the last 41 years and I'm nearly 60 now, so is it worth the aggro.
Might be best to leave things alone.  :-\ ::)................or just do a google search on the nearest glue factory.  ;D

Sounds to me you are basically f*cked beyond repair. ;)

I suffer from pain in my lower back, hips and knees.  :( 

I was told years ago that I have a twisted pelvis which at the time didn't cause any problems, but as I've got older the pain levels have increased and at times I've had mobility issues which can only get worse.  :-\  My GP's response has been to dish out painkillers and anti inflammatories which have helped, but I don't feel that these are treating the problem just masking the symptoms:-\

I'm wondering if manipulation might help and given most of you lot are creaky old geezers, i thought this was the ideal place to ask!  :)

So Chiropractor, Osteopath or Physiotherapist?  ???  TIA!  :y

Unfortunately this is the first call for GP's, they just act as a firewall between you and an expert opinion. >:(

Probably cheaper to take yourself off to the nearest glue factory?  :P

Sniffing a bit of glue now and again might ease the pain.  :)
