Hi, I was a runner in the army and the years of running in boots have had its toll. I had micro fracture surgery just over 2 years ago, but the pain in left knee is horrendous. I went to see a new registrar last week who said my knee cap was gone, looking at xray confirmed that the locking is due to the left and right side of knee are bone on bone but I seem to have a little cartilage in the centre. He said at 49 I'm too young, in the mean time keep off stairs, hills, don't stand too long and limit walking! I'm actually annoyed I didn't request to see the consultant as my right knee is hurting at times, plus I'm getting pain in my hip which I have no doubt is due to my knee. I now walk on my outer foot, so when standing still my posture forces my feet over so my large toe is raised off the floor. Has anyone been here? Why is it not good to get a new knee at 49? I'm worried it will be a new hip to at this rate, any thoughts advice welcomed
