Well the pain wasn't there all the time. But I wasn't able to stretch my knee entirely since that accident 5.5 year ago. It only became really painfull when I overloaded it; like running, jumping, standing too long (festivals, long days at work), walking on high heals etc. But usually I could live with it pretty well. but going to gigs/festivals, running etc killed me more and more. I indeed remember you having trouble with it. You should keep a good watch on it. I didn't expect my knee to be in such a bad stage as it was to be honest. Be carefull with your fever!! Isn't there someone that can take care of you? Good: I bought a new camera lens! Ok it's second handed, but I really don't care about that. It was just 80 euros instead of 360.
