Not sure yet Hun as I think he wants to do another arthroscopy to see the damage then he knows what sort of replacement he will so I think it is the kneecap he is replacing I can't understand though why I had to have a hip X-ray and a MRI on my lower back ?? And he mentioned an injection in my back which I'm dreading x

May checking other areas as I think hip and back issues can cause knee problems. Are you having back pain? Another thought is when you have your knee replaced they numb the leg by using a nerve block in your back. These are problematic if a patient has back degeneration. I have this and when I was in labour with my son they sent a senior anaesthetist to do my epidural. My back is knackered but luckily my knees are ok! Lol hope it all goes well for you x

Because he said the last resort would be the kneecap replacement xx
