It was confirmed a couple of months ago that I had severe secondary osteoarthritis as well as rheumatoid arthritis today I have had my first appointment with a knee surgeon. He believes the best operation is reconsructive knee surgery. I am 32 and he feels I am too young for a full knee replacement. I was quite over whelmed by the appointment and had lots of questions I wanted to ask and have forgotten the name of the surgery that he recommends but it'll transfer the weight through the opposite bone. I have several doubts and concerns and had pretty much prepared myself for a full knee replacement. I was told that I will in time need a full knee replacement but this surgery may give me a bit of time. I feel like i'm in a complete whirlwind at the moment and almost back to square one with regards to treatment and eventually being pain free, and would love to hear from anyone that has been in a similar situatuion
