After seeing my surgeon in february this year i've had several xrays and an mri scan of my right knee and have finally made it to the top of the waiting list! I am in such horrible pain and am almost housebound, just walking a couple of yards and I need to sit down.
I think that because the pain is so bad and I've had it for about 15 years although the pain has definately worsened in the last 12 months I can't imagine it going away. Apparently my knee is full of debris and I have a meniscal tear which will be cleaned out and repaired.
My left knee has quite severe OA but it is nowhere near as painful as my right knee strangely. Just walking (staggering) around the house exhausts me and my grandchildren being here for the day knocks me for six.
Anyway wish me luck for tuesday, I'm having a general anaestetic but will be out the same day. See you on the other side!!! Where hopefully I won't be walking like Quasimodo. Deb
