On 4/22/11, I had NINE surgeries within approximately 3 hours. Due to very limited range of motion in my ankle....I had 3 bone spurs removed from the top of my ankle & foot. Well, that didn't give me the flexibility I desired. So, doc went behind my leg, & removed three sections of my Achilles Tendons. Then operated on 3 different areas of my knee. Well, it's SEVEN MONTHS later...& I've experienced so slow, barely unnoticeable progress...well, I'm 5months from totally losing my job. All therapy sessions, unfortunately hasn't produced noticeable progress. So now, I'm trying something, that several people SWEARS by...along with seriously being committed to a full fledge gym membership now. After approximately 3 weeks of research. I am now experimenting with " DMSO "!!!! I've only been using this stuff for maybe a week. So far, it's removed some of the soreness on both sides of my ankles. So, bare with me, & check back with me, by the middle of December of 2011. Hopefully I'll have some good news to share, for a very, very affordable, in home, testimonies!!!!View Thread
