Both knees were bone-on-bone with arthritis aggravating the situation to the point that I could not walk more than 1 block without suffering. I stopped traveling, hiking and and visiting museums. I was in extreme pain just standing while teaching figure skating, my profession.
I have now gotten my life back. I hike, bike, teach without pain, and can now ballroom dance and travel and see new places (walking and exploring these places for hours), without pain. The photos are a bike trip in Puerto Rico, hiking Souffa Stone Mountain in St. Kitts, and taking a ballroom dancing lesson during a recent cruise.
