Hi I'm new to this, anyone had this op and still not walking properly, or knee not weight bearing going down stairs after 4 months? My weight is in proportion to my height so that's not the problem, totally fed up with it, thanks

    Hi Janice

    I'm due to have arthroscopy in 2 weeks, not had it

    yet so can't help you however, there's lots on this

    site about it and probs people are experiencing. From what I've read, if you are older, it might not be the best solution to the problem people were

    experiencing. I'm sure others who have been through it will advise. Good luck. Hope things resolve very soon.

      Hi Deb

      Thanks for that, today it actually felt a lot better! Been amazed at how I walked about so well, so I'm feeling more optimistic that it's improving, wish you well for your op, just take your time in the beginning doing the exercises, it's all you can do.

      Take care, janice

    Hi Janice I had the same op because I had

    A locked knee. I would say it took me 12 months

    for my knee to feel normal again. I was not offered much Physio so I paid private to see one and see

    gave me a list of excercises to do which I did at least 4 times a day and this worked for me.

    Hope this helps kind regards Bev

      Hi Bev,

      Thank you for telling me, that was a long time but glad you got there finally. I also have had physio which helped but had to ask for it, ridiculous that I was only given an exercise booklet and left to get on with it with no follow up, anyways, feel today it was much better, touch wood! But it's made me feel more optimistic, thanks again for sharing,

      keep well, janice.
