Hi there I am new to this site and have just posted a message but realise I put it on the general discussion site by mistake instead of here! I was a fit and very active lady up until 4 years ago when I was told I needed a knee replacement after many years of running long distances. I had the surgery which was painful never got right, then had to have it all redone a year later which was very painful and a slow recovery. It still never got right and today I still struggle with the constant pain when I try to walk. I have done all the exercises and tried many alternative therapies with limited success. Pakillers no longer work so i have stopped taking them. I was drinking too much wine to dull the pain and have since stopped this too as I realised that this wasn’t the answer! I have been told by the medics that nothing more can be done and that I will just have to hope it improves in time. The last surgery was nearly 2 years ago, and I haven’t had a day without pain since I started this journey.. I feel frustrated at not being able to enjoy the lovely coastal walks near where I live ( I recently retired). I was reading about TMS and have just ordered Dr Sarnos book about back pain which arrives tomorrow. I’m assuming it’s not just about back pain but the principles are the same for any pain? I am interested in the idea of TMS which I have been reading about online, as interestingly, during the last 4 years , along side my surgeries, I have been through a lot of emotional stress, ( divorce, death of both my parents) , so am now wondering if there is a link, and if this is why I continue to have this chronic pain. I would be grateful for any advice on the subject as it is all new to me.? Is there anything practical I can do other than read the book? I live in the UK . Thanking you in anticipation !
