Hi, up until the 3rd of May this year I lead a full life, walking my dogs daily on the beach, dashing up and down stairs and flying arround the shops. Sometimes a tad creaky but generally a fairly fit 70 yr old who felt and looked nearer 60yrs. By the 10th of May all that had changed, I was in agony, couldn't walk needed very strong pain relief and crutches. Following a scan I had an Arthroscopy and debridment, which has been a complete failure, I am still on crutches, exhausted and feeling my life is over. I suspect when I see my consultant next month he is going to suggest a complete knee replacement, but will it really work? Will I be able to walk the dogs again and lead a relatively normal pain free life. I am relatively strong minded and will do the exercises, but I just long to be free of pain, and able to move normally. Do you good folk who have been through this, think I could achieve this by next summer?
