Tomorrow, I will receive injections in my knees. It is called Orthovisc or the slang term "Jelly Juice". It is synthetic cartilage. I will receive a shot once a week for three weeks. The effect of this "Jelly Juice" is that it provides a coushin in the knee cap. I currently have no cartilage in the medial part of both my knees. This treatment should be really helpful and allow me to walk farther. Right now I have to rest every quarter mile before I continue on because my knees hurt so much. Right now with rests between, I can walk a mile to a mile and a half. I hope to build up to 2-3 miles a day. I would appreciate your prayers for the effectiveness of this treatment.
