Aching Knees!

               My durn knee is giving me trouble. How did that happen? 

              I was told my artificial knee's life was about 15-18 years. 

 I got to counting up when my surgeries were and it's been 17 years since one of my surgeries, 16 for the other.                                                                             So, I rubbed it with Voltaren and it is better. 


Out practicing my walking with my physical therapist. 2005

 I do believe in that Voltaren! Happy that I have more than one tube in my medicine cabinet! 

It used to be a prescription but now you can get the same strength Voltaren over the counter. That was a big help to all us 'oldies' out here who have those aches and pains that come with age. 

BTW, has anyone tried the CBD salve/cream/rub? I hear it's good but it's more expensive than other stuff. Guess I will just stick with what I know.

  2. Sore knees are a misery. I can't use Voltaren because it contains aspirin. My daughter likes it, though. When my knees begin to act up, I massage them as directed by my pt. Clockwise on the right knee; counter clockwise on the left. As odd as it sounds, I get relief rather quickly, 😘

  4. Knees are a terrible issue, aren't they? Both of us have bad ones. Hubby uses Voltaren on his rotator cuff injury.
