My MRI and X-ray results said I have severe patellofemoral arthritis and mild medial joint line arthritis in my right knee, as well as a lose kneecap.
The specialist told me I'd need a full knee replacement but as I was 47 years old it would be best delay it. So I had a cortisone injection that didn't work. I've just been back to the specialist and he is now saying I'm too young to have a partial knee op (yes it changed to a partial), so he's not prepared to do it yet. He's decided to do an arthroscopy to look inside and see if he can delay things.
I've got pain walking, bending, kneeling etc etc. I'm really upset that my age has gone against me when I'm approaching 50 years old. Has anyone had to wait for a knee replacement Because they were 'too young'? I've looked into severe patellofemoral arthritis and it sounds like it needs sorting out asap, does anyone agree?
I feel really let down because of my age
