After arthroscopy following twisting my knee and suspecting a torn meniscus I was told I needed TKR what a shock that came as !
I am 62 years of age 13st 8 lbs ( don't do all that modern metric stuff sorry ) I cycle around 100 miles a week, can run up the stairs no problem apart from a bit of a stinging sensation on thre outer part of my knee just aware of it more than painful
The surgeon gave the knee a rating of 3 whatever that means ?
So to surgery or not, I am of a mind that why go through major surgery with all the possible implications of good/bad outcomes when I am mobile and in little pain if any at all?
The great unknown to me is the speed at which it may deteriorate, weeks months years I have no idea?
I am sole carer for my disabled Mother so surgery would impact on us both
Any input would be greatly appreciated as I am at a loss if to proceed or not
