For some time now I have been suffering with this problem and it now is getting worse.
My wife is 60 and I'm 60 in December but my wife has no problems walking. She loves the outdoors and enjoys walking especially with me. We also enjoy City breaks and have visited some great European cities. I have experienced difficulty getting about these places but I have managed.
We recently returned from Bratislava where I could not walk around much. The pain was unbareable and my left knee gave way a few times. At night my knees feel as if they are burning and I struggle to sleep. I take tablets but they are not much good.
Until recently my GP has been putting me off from having new knee replacements because he tells me I'm too young? When I had X Rays the surgeon who performed what was a cartillage op told me I had grade four osteo and it was as bad as it got. That was 5 years ago and it happened to have got worse.
My wife has had to tell me about the surprise she has booked for my 60th and she feels terrible that she will be putting me through pain again.
I know many on here will have endured the operation and I would like to know if anyone has any pain afterwards. I'm sure it cannot be this bad.
Your thoughts please.
Kind regards Dennis
