Hi everyone, I know some of you come on here before your operation and some of the stories are scary and not very optimistic. I'll tell you my story. I'm 51, waited 4 years between my first x-ray being diagnosed as osteoarthritis in both knees at 47 and being told I'm too young to get a knee replacement. A new doctor joined my practice and sent me for a further x-ray and within 3/4 months I had my operation. I thank this doctor. I was in tears at work, my knee started to lock. I'm 8 weeks post op and I get a shooting pain on the outer knee, I walk a bit slower but like I say it's only 8 weeks. The arthritic pain is completely gone. Go for it!!
