Today (28th February) marks Rare Disease Day, a day that didn't really mean anything to me last year, well why would it?, I wasn't aware that I was suffering from a rare disease, and didn't know of anyone who did; however this year it is different.
I wasn't planning to blog about this, however I feel compelled to help raise awareness of a condition that I am suffering with. Regular readers of my blog may recall that last year I underwent an MRI scan and knee operation.
The results of my MRI scan identified that I was suffering from the early onset of something called Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis or PVNS for short. My consultant and I didn't really talk in too much detail about it, as we hoped that the operation he was going to perform would alleviate the severe pain that I was experiencing.
