I am waiting for confirmation that my doctor is right that my painful left knee is suffering with osteoarthritis. I have very much enjoyed reading some of your posts and am sure I will learn a lot from you all.

Take care, and regards


  • Hi @Calendula

    Welcome to the online community!

    I see that you are waiting for a diagnosis of osteoarthritis. In the meantime, you might want to have a look at our information page on osteoarthritis of the knee.

    There is also a weekly exercise program designed by Versus Arthritis for people with arthritis called 'Let's Move With Leon' which you might be interested in - exercise can help to reduce joint pain for people with arthritis.

    It's great to hear you've been enjoying reading community posts - please feel free to post or comment on any discussion you find interesting.

    Nice to meet you!
