    Obviously it’s time for you to learn to handstand and walk on your hands. If you do all your ambulation that way from now on then your knees can get some rest.:)

    On the upside of this, I mean beyond learning how to walk on my hands ;), If I end up going for arthroscopic surgery on the left knee, and I go for the ultrasound targeted cortisone shot on the right hip, I may just be able to get back to xingyiquan......

    I am new to the forum. After I got out of the military, my knees were so bad I had to crawl up and down the stairs. After 6 months of doing taijiquan I could walk up the stairs again. I also became a certified Physical Therapy Technician. I am going to be posting a lot of videos on here. If you would like in a month or 2 I can post a video of my knee physical therapy routine. It should help. Absolutely FREE of course.

    Would love to see them as well. But a bit of an update to this thread. I have had arthroscopic knee surgery and I am currently in PT, but I'm always open to more that will help the knee.

    Just read this post. I have never heard of guided cortisone shots. Have you had them and could you tell any difference from a regular knee injection?

    Had it in the hip, but not the knee.

    Well, here we are almost 11 weeks after the knee surgery and I still can't walk down stairs normally. And today, PT found a large round lump just above the knee cap, that hurts a lot if you press on it. They want me to check with the MD. Luckily I have an appointment with him next week

    Sorry to hear Xue, hopefully just inflammation or mild fluid and not a cyst.
