I am back again ladies. I had scope and chondroplasty done in Feb. and it has never been right. Lots of swelling, always discomfort and recurring pain.
After 8 months (yeah, it took me that long) I have had a second opinion. They are suggesting partial replacement.
My fear is that a total replacement will be inevitable. Any material out there to indicate this - do some feel you should just 'wait' until it is completely shot?
While I do have pain and discomfort, the swelling has really played with my mental health as it is a constant reminder, kinda sways when I do anything, inhibits range of motion to some degree - in general keeps this active lady down and it just plain makes me mad.
I worry that what seems like a 'quick fix' (I did not say easy) will only lead to bigger more drastic issues later and should I just wait until a total is necessary? The thoughts of several years of limited activity and then a fix v. several years of the quick fix now and drastic later v. failure of either option is very confusing and down right depressing at this point.
This thread has always been a wealth of information. I am hoping someone can give me some informed feedback.
And yes, I do realize nothing in life in guaranteed.
