Hello, I've been reading "old" comments from patients who have had PKR, and it sounds as if there are lots of problems during recovery. I've had knee pain for several years, managing with injections, Advil, and physical therapy. My MRI shows torn meniscus and moderate arthritis, especially in the medial area. Doctor recommends PKR in the medial area, says recovery is much easier than TKR, there's a 95% success rate, and I should do it sooner rather than later. I am 76, healthy, physically active mostly walking. Right now I can manage the pain and continue to walk, but wonder if I should follow doctor's recommendation. I would appreciate any comments. Thank you.
