Hi everyone my GP had referred me to the hospital with a view to a knee replacement. I had surgery on a torn meniscus 2 years ago, the consultant who performed the surgery did feel I would be back within 2 years. I've been suffering with arthritis and over the past 6 months it's deteriorated rather quickly. X rays taken in November showed it to be moderate and as cortisone shots and Physio sessions didn't do anything I was referred. Saw another consultant in November last year, he felt a replacement wouldn't be beneficial and suggested another cortisone and more Physio. The cortisone lasted 2 weeks and Physio had no results. Back to GP yet another referral been told I won't get an appointment for at least 8-10 weeks with a further 6-12 week wait. I'm in so much pain can barely walk. Am trying to push through continuing walking and on a weight loss plan to try and help. Feel so lost at the moment. Sorry for moaning guys.
