I had an arthroscopy on my right knee approx. 18 months ago which was a great success. I now have to have the same done on my left knee in a few weeks. As a result of this my right knee has become very painful again and is slightly bowing. My surgeon said this is probably a result of me over compensating when I walk even though I use crutches as much as possible. He hopes that it will settle down once I’ve had the surgery on my left knee.
I’m going to see him on Thursday as I’m really worried about it and I’m terrified that I am going to need a knee replacement. I’m 34 and know that because of my age the surgeon is reluctant to do it as well as me having what he calls “small bones”.
Has anyone else been in a similar position to me and if so what was the outcome?
