"I Can Stand Longer and Walk Farther"
After a right knee injury, dealing with osteoarthritis, and pain/knee popping, (over several years) walking and standing became very limited. I had three arthroscopies.
Finally after years of pain, arthroscopes, and my knee popping, I made an appointment with my doctor. My doctor showed me that all cartilage in my knee joint was gone. After x-rays, he said, "you need a knee joint replacement", I agreed. At that point, I was ready for the surgery. I had it done August 2013.
After knee replacement, I can stand longer and walk farther (without a cane), no more pain.
My arthroscopies removed the damaged cartilage but, it wasn't a fix.
