Is looking for some advice, all started a couple of years ago with knee pain in right knee. I used to run a fair bit no marathons the odd 10k, saw gp and got referred to specialist. Had first arthroscopy surgery where they found a hole in the cartilage. Then had second operation of an implant fitted. Since then fell over into knee and badly bruised it consultant thought it was meniscus tear. Did 3rd arthroscopy and showed a lot of wear and tear and arthritus. Still in pain, effects my sleep and daily routine. Last week had a cortisone injection, not felt any benefit yet, initially seemed easier but then same pain back. Consultant has advised knee replacement would be the next step but I am young. He said my knee is in a pretty bad way. Not sure on the time scale and what to do regarding this. Any help would be appreciated. ;-)
