My knee injury was a bucket handle tear of the lateral meniscus when I was 15 yrs old. It was not repaired until nearly 6 months later but it was too late to repair. A chondratissue implant had to be put on my tibia but the result is now I have only 2/3 articulate cartilage on my tibia and a scoring of 2 to 3 with osteoarthritis.
I can no longer bear weight or walk without crutches and the pain at night is excruciating.
i want to know if there is anyone out there who has had a total knee replacement? I want to be out of pain. I have had to put my life on hold, my a levels and university offers have to wait because I cannot concentrate.
Please can anyone advise. My consultant says I need to be on a higher scale for knee replacement and that I am too young.
