Time for an upgrade
In 1991 I was told that I would need a tin knee in the future. The surgeon recommended I wait as long as I could, as the technology was continually improving.
Two operations later- the last one seven years ago- I think the time has come.
Grinding bone on bone, the damned thing now hurts like hell most of the time.
For the record, the initial damage was done by a drunk speeding along 37 years ago- I survived a 70kph collision with a vehicle- something most people are killed by.
Let's now see how the ACC system works.
I will keep you posted...
A quick examination- yes, crepitus and its off for an x-ray.
Arthritis- take some pills and put up with it.
