  • Alternatives to surgery
    I have read everyone else's story and am glad and dismayed that I am not alone. I have been dislocating since 1977-nine times so far and have had many of the procedures/surgerys listed. I wear a knee brace 24/7 and still dislocated again this week. I can sometimes get the knee cap back in myself if I can do it in the split second before the pain reaches my brain which makes the whole experience no less painful but much more tolerable. I have been to numerous OS and the surgical procedure that is an option now sounds debilatating for far too long for something that only has a slight chance of helping. Has anyone had any success with non-surgical options; a brace that works, acupunture, massage, voodoo....ANYTHING?? Also, has anyone found an OS who thinks outside the box and might be willing to work on a non-surgical alternative? Thanks. Wendy artiles@earthlink.net
