I have a consultant appointment tomorrow and need to make a decision. My right knee needs a TKR. I have already had my left knee replaced twice due to arthritis i had from childhood. I was 39 and 52 and have supporting stents as well. My right knee is now in constant pain and i have tried steriod injections and psiotheraphy treatment which as not helped. I also suffer with Neuropathic nerve pain in my left knee. I have just turned 60 and this will be 3 TKR by the age of 60. I have been reluctant to go for more surgery, but now feel like i have no choice. The winter is not here yet and i will be worse then. I know there isn't anything anybody can say, just wanted some positive thoughts from people. I also live on my own and it will be a srtruggle whilst recuperating. Not looking forward to it. Wish something else could be done.
