betty2
Finally got the verdict on my knee problem at long last.
After my visit to the hospital yestwerday which only took about 30mins. was told I need a plastic kneecap replacement, did,nt take them long to see what my problem was, but thankfully my joints are healthy so I wont need a full knee replacement. There is a 4 month max. waiting list but could be done within that time. So its off to vegas for me with a peace of mind and I,ll think about it when I get back. Its amszing only about 5 minutes in an x[ray room straight out to see the results then informed of what is needing done, all of this was done and dusted in 30 minutes. My faith in our NHS has been restored

For the past two years I have been taking Glucosamine tablets and this I think can contribute to the fact my joints are healthy, now I have the same in patch form, this I recommend to anyone suffering from osteoathritis. Its worked for me The kneecap problem I believe was caused by the fact that all my working days were spent on my feet, and dammed hard work at that

Keelie its surgery after all for me sad.gif
Elma
I'm glad you've got the diagnosis on your knee, Betty, and only need the kneecap replaced. My friend here has had both knees replaced, a year apart, she is doing well now but it took a long time. Hopefully you won't have to wait too long after your Vegas trip to have it done as I'm sure you will decide to have the surgery.

So now it's off to Vegas and the fabulous strip. Hope you win lots!!!!! biggrin.gif
CAT
Glad to hear ye got yer results Betty ye can go off tae vegas wi peace o' mind now.
Congratulations to Mag's wub.gif With all these cards Betty's windae ledge will be full in no time.
Isobel
Hey Betty you said you could feel it in your watter that everything would be ok for me. Well you were right My dress arrived had it fitted ,I only need about a yard of the bottom, me just a wee shortie . any way so far so good. Glad to hear the good news about your knee, One of the girl at swimming is having that same think done this morning. Just go away and enjoy Vegas ,god a wish I was coming with you . Looks a really nice resort. Isobel
tammy
Enjoy your trip Betty, much luck on the slots! And 4 months wait time, that is no time at all to wait. If you were here, it would probably be a year! And once it's done, you'll feel great.
betty2

Melody
Have a great time pal but mind yer road hame. wub.gif Take care of yourself. wub.gif
Melody
In the words of the wonderful, wonderful Matt McGinn and for Betty.



I'll be down to collect you for the bingo, Betty,
Rendezvous in the Gallowgate,
Mind, Betty, don't be late
We've got to be there before the crowd starts queuing.
Remember when we get there, Betty,
We're gonnie be trying for the big snowball,
But whether it's win or lose,
We'll have a damn good feed of the booze,
Tomorrow night at the South Side Bingo Ball.

You and I were nearly winning last time, Betty,
If it hadn't been for Maggie McGill,
Wouldn't yon one make you ill?
Seven hundred and twenty two smackers.
Hasn't spoken to a neighbour since then
After tapping them for seventeen years
Ah but, mind you, there's one thing nice,
Lightning never strikes the same place twice,
So we will have a chance at the South Side Bingo Ball.

We'll be catching the bus to the bingo, Betty,
We will alight at the Gorbals Cross,
Pie and peas with tomato sauce,
Till we can lay our hands on that snowball.
Then we'll be heading for the taxi, Betty,
To the Rogano wi' yer ten bob tip,
And when they ask us what we want,
We'll say pour us oot yer creme du mint
Tomorrow night at the South Side Bingo Ball.
