    Not really! At Brandon’s age he could go for alternative treatments before full replacement; phys therapy, ligament or tendon surgery - all depending on the issue and can wait the full replacement t till he’s older. Or more worn out lol

    Yeah, if it's just the meniscus then it can be cleaned up/repaired, and it'll last forever.

    So what’s the alternative when it doesn’t “last” anymore? Another new knee? I mean if it alleviates their pain and one can stay active, do the therapy that’s so important after surgery then it’s doable even at a young age...

    Kinda disheartening if you think about it! I would think the idea is to be as active as you were before, and to be told to slow down? Uggh, then I’d opt for alternatives for sure before a TKA or swap bodies!

    Yeah, my mom was in her late 60s for her first knee, then when second knee was supposed to be done dad got sick and passed, she waited a couple years to do the other knee. She’s 89 now and moves well but uses a walker for stability from a stroke a few years back. She’s a tough lady!! Did her PT religiously!!

    Feel better Brandon. See if you can get a prescription for Voltaren Gel from your doctor and put that on 3 times a day and just try to baby it.

    Do you really think you KNEEd surgery?:p

    Thanks. I was glad for it too. It was caused by standing toe out a bit, and letting my feet lean out to the side while at a desk, or driving and such. What equates to the elastic band (was called the IT band IIRC) that goes along the outside of the thigh from the hip to the knee was just tightening up the slack and got overtight. Started pulling my knee cap off to the side. Patellar Tracking Disorder. My knees still make some awful grinding and crunching noises that I can hear and feel, but the MRI was clear and my knee(s) haven't buckled on me since correcting the posture and habits.

    I have a few veteran friends... on of them said something about the VA that made me pretty sad. Didn't realize how much better we should be taking care of our Vets. He said "The VA: giving veterans a second chance to die for their country"

    I enjoy the hell out of them, but I just don't get to the range enough to justify the expense of the hobby. I am actually thinking about trimming down my "arsenal" in the future.

    Damn. That was what mine looked like too. That and where the pain was is what made him think he was gonna be doing surgeries to clean it all up. Then the MRIs shows that my knees were great.

    Given that yours is from an actual injury, I am not gonna hold my breath for you lucking out. I will cross my fingers and pray for you, though.

    I'm in the same position with my shoulder. Hurt it about 9 years ago when I was a tree climber, and got caught in the rope after toping the tree. Let it heal on its own, but it's always had a twinge, the the past 2 years it's been progressively worse, but I'm too much of a wuss to see a Dr.

    I’m well aware, but I still do it on the side for select people. Push through the issues with the shoulder because I can’t afford to be laid up for any amount of time
    I’m just glad the ropes got me and not the saw
