Went to see a Neurologist today for intense bilateral knee pain that my chiropractor told me was connected to my scoliosis. After examination and knee x-rays he told me that he believes that the intense pain I am experiencing is a patellafemoral thing due to me having no cartilage left between either knee's joints. he is going to do an spinal MRI next week to look for spinal stenosis since at ti.es this intense pain goes from my lower back down the back of my legs and well. He also looked at my 2016 spinL cray a d said he actually didnt believe my scoliosis was that bad when in 2016 the radiologist described it as "severe". He explained that if there was spinal stenosis he could probably help me..if not, then I would need to see an orthopedic surgeon for bilateral TKR's. I don't believe in TKRs, never have as I have too many friends that had them and are worse off than when they began. At 70 yrs of age, I am not interested in any iron man's contest, marathon, disco dancing trophy, etc.
.I just want to walk with minimal pain for the weekly trip to the store and visits to see my family. I am so depressed tonight..all I am doing is crying. Is there no other solution..I feel as though he was telling me wheel hair vs. TKRs. Please help me understand.
