It must be Winter – spectre of knee aches return

4 years ago (2018), I underwent a Tibial Osteotomy operation in the UK. I had been suffering from the onset of arthritis on my right knee and needed a solution that would avoid a knee replacement operation and get my life back to some level of normality.

The last 3-4 weeks in the UK have been pretty cold, albeit lacking with rainfall.

As part of my work routine, I normally go out for a 45 minute walk before I start work; also grabbing a coffee from the high street. I also get to the Gym most lunchtimes and spend 40 minutes. Using the treadmill is going well and continuing to use the weights does work

In the last 2-3 weeks, I have started to feel similar pains in my treated knee as I did before my operation although more focused to the front of the knee. Gauging the pain on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 is no pain), I would say a 3 or 4 as I know it is there. It’s not causing me issues in daily activity but it does raise questions and is beginning to play on my mind.

I am going to carry on with my routine and just monitor the pain for now and hoping its a combination of age (I’m not 25 anymore ! ) and weather. Things will get better soon

I may need to do a search other blogs to get a view of what I can do to push my confidence back up.

Will post again with an update
