Hello All...it's been a long time since I last posted.
Had a knee revision done May of this year. The knee is still swollen. Was a tough one.
Anyways...right after the surgery (at home) the RLS kicked in hard. Not much relief. Doctor's giving me plenty of iron infusions but iron's still low.
Anyways thought I would check in.
I am still taking ropinirole...and unsure if I am augmenting or what?
One thing at a time. So much going on at the moment.
Thanks for all the support I do get here!!

Sincerely,
Marie aka Oceanwalker

HI! Hope the knee surgery helps in the long run. Surgery really can worsen symptoms - hard to tell if augmentation might be part of it in this case, isn't it?

Hope things calm down in general.

Yes Ann I can now walk LOL ....not funny but was pretty well unable to prior the surgery...so YES! surgery sure helped!. True true...difficult at this time to tell if this is augmentation or not.
I hope to be able to one day find that out.
So..I had several iron infusions and scheduled for more. Hope this helps as well.

Take care and nice to be back;)

Sincerely,
Marie

I hope those infusions to the job, Marie. Truly, I do :-). And, so glad you are walking again. My best friend has one scheduled - I am so excited for her!
