I I have changed Doctor as it has become a little like catch 22 with the numbness in my right foot being the same leg as my sore knee if I wear a knee brace I wonder if it could restrict circulation even more.

So with only 8 weeks before I set off from Port douglas I need to see what can be done with the knee tape strapping seems to make sense  but maybe a small op who knows.

I will be wearing my bedrock sandals (Modifide with a thicker rubber sole) the reason for that is to reduce jarring on my old knees.
So will keep you posted.
Have a great day everyone.
