I (now realise) tore my right (inside) knee cartilage playing tennis in January. My previous GP referred me to an orthopedic centre which I eventually got an appointment in July. I was referred for an MRI scan but must have got "lost" in the system and so now I'm paying for a scan on the 17th.
I can walk albeit very gingerly and get about with full knee movement but it's painful at night and I can no longer play any sport which I enjoyed.
Having googled as much as possible there looks a strong body of opinion that at 61 I won't get great benefit from surgery and that it may in fact lead to earlier possibility of knee replacement !
Also who is the best knee surgeon in the south west if I do go down that route ?
