Osgood Schlatters Disease

Thats right folks, im diseased!

Ive had a pain in my knee for a while now, and i finally got round to going to the doctors and having an xray etc. The results came in, and my doctor from the oak tree surgery in mansfield told me jack schitt as usual – i told my girlfriend what the doctor said and she asked some of the awesome doctors at her work who told her that my symptoms mean i have Osgood Schlatters Disease.

It is;  “A disease of the growth and degeneration of the tibial tuberosity”

Or in other words; “A disease under my knee cap that grows then dies, then grows then dies and gets worse from exercise”

Apparently there is nothing they can do, i jsut have to wait and let it get better. I have been told not to run when i go to the gym 🙁 i will have to get my cardio fix another way 🙂

I was diagonised with this disease when I was 8 years old. Army docs said that they use to put your legs in a cast for a year, but then they found out that you would grow out of it eventually. Well I am 48 years old and have not grown out of it yet. My right knee is okay now, but my left will give out while I am walking across even my living room. And forget stairs. I have sandpaper knees and pain every day. I have a large bone that sticks out below my kneecap that people actually stare at and think that my leg was broken in an accident an is now deformed and no doctors seem to pay attention because I am not a kid. Please any other adults with this problem, please e-mail me.
