My knee has been hurting for years. Slowly getting worse. Saw Dr a few years ago given brace and steroid injection. Injection didn't help, brace somewhat but limited. So, last month I went to a new Dr. He said he thought it was patellofemoral syndrome and told me to go for PT and if it didn't help then an MRI. PT evaluator said he thought is was a tendon or meniscus problem. My knee only hurts on the inside curve. So did PT and went back to Dr. I asked about the MRI, he said no need as we already know there is a problem. Gave me another injection and said if that didn't help maybe an arthroscopy. So, after this long introduction, my question is should I go for the arthroscopy? The new injection was AWFUL the first day, still in pain day 2 but not as bad. I am 60 and if I get it done I want to do it this year as my deductible is paid and I'm in general good health. Any advice appreciated.
