Hi All

I'm a new member and thought you guys might have some experience or opinions to offer. I am 26 years old, and have in the past been very active, exercising up to 8 sessions a week.

10 years ago I had surgery to remove a bone spur from my knee. Even post surgery I found that I still had pain after exercise, but I just dealt with it.

Now I have no cartilage left in my right knee joint and am in pain on a daily basis and surgeons are recommending a partial knee replacement. Everything I read refers to most patients being at least 50 years old and I am worried that even if I do get 10 years of activity out of this, I will possibly need to have it redone when I am 36...46.... Surely this can't continue to my life expectancy of maybe 75???

Has anyone had any experience with this or has had this done and can share war stories?

Thanks guys

Lea
