Would Gransnetters be kind enough to tell me how bad their knees were before they had replacement knees inserted.
My GP told me today that the criteria is 'severe pain'. I've been active and sporty all my life but now one knee especially pains me a lot. I can't walk more than a couple of miles at the least and pay the price in pain and stiffness. Running, even a few feet, is out of the question. I can't kneel anymore and I've just had a fall which injured my foot badly because I tripped and my knee gave way.
The GP stared stonily at me throughout and said physiotherapy and focused exercise was the recommended treatment now. Any comments? Thank you.
