Ive had the above procedure on both knees. There was no improvement either time and it hurt like hell.
Ive since been through a TKR in June 2017, which is being ripped out next March, as its a shambles and has left me so much worse than I was after 20 years of bone on bone. However, I digress.
I have a client who is very senior person in private health care. I mentioned my Arthroscopies which resulted in a chuckle.
Essentially, these procedures are the 'bread and butter' of the private health care world. Easy money in effect.
In 2017 the NHS produced a report calling arthroscopies 'a waste of time' in most cases...Google it..
The message therefore is, think really hard and ask some searching questions of your surgeon before you go ahead..
Another friend of mine always asks any surgeon 'how many times he has been sued' !
Im sure I will be back on this forum after my revision. If anyone has any experience of a revision, would be interested to see how it compared to the original TKR, in terms of discomfort, recovery time etc...
