For many years I have had problems with both knees... clicking, grinding and pain... now after many wasted years trying physio and other fixes i have finally been refered to a knee specialist, who wuickly diagnosed my problem... seems my knees are facing outwards and are out of track... not an issue that can be fixed with physio (I.e. build up vastus medialis to pull knees straight). An mri scan will confirm the extent of the problem, but looks as though I have a problem which ive had since birth and an osteotomy will have to be performed on each knee to realign them... Obviously this will require a long period off work for recovery after surgery, which comes with it's own issues.. at least 12 weeks off work will put a massive dent in my non existent savings.... but my question now. . Is what do I do to manage the pain I am in before I have the surgery?.... will exercise benefit me or have a negative impact? My left knee hurts the most, it grinds and clicks and even just walking leaves me in pain!... will it just get worse or can I improve this in the meantime? ... any suggestions will be appreciated.
