I'm a year and a half behind you, seems like I have been saying a year and a half, forever.
I too have bad knees, three operations (scopes). Last one Dr. told me he wanted to be the one to replace it. It apparently is not a matter of if, just when, he couldn't tell me how long I had, he said I determined that, based on pain tolerance.
Should I continue to deal with the pain and reduced movement, as in I have limits on how far I can walk, much over a mile causes issues.
Or should I go ahead and have it replaced? I have same Medical
coverage either way, so that is not the issue.
Issue other than my fear is how long does a replacement last? An I better off waiting?
Id hate to get one now, then have it worn out with me in my late 60's, I assume you heal slower then, and surely it's more invasive replacing an artificial one with another?
You going with "bad" knees?
