Does anyone know if you still have a meniscus following a TKR?
I'm not sure if we still have these structures in place following this op?
I had an Arthroscopy to repair 2 tears in my right knee over 4 years ago, then I had a TKR on that knee in August last year.
Whilst recovering from this I fell down about 6 steps and hurt my left knee, I had an MRI in January and went for the results yesterday, I now have 2 tears in my left knee and have been put on the waiting list to have another Arthroscopy in about 6 weeks time.
I am so fed up with problems with my knees as I just want to lead a normal life again, think work is starting to get fed up with the amount of time I've had off with knee problems!! I'm a staff nurse so it has a big impact on my daily working life.
So I just wondered am I free from tearing my meniscus again now I have a TKR or not?
Hope some one can help please?
