I'd advise you to get it done as soon as possible. The longer you leave it, the more it could deteriorate. Muscles and tendons could shrink and you could lose some muscle strength. All of that could make for more complicated surgery and will make for a more difficult recovery.I keep wondering if it makes a difference if you wait longer for the replacement or not. This knee has been bone on bone for about 8 years.
If your knee has already affected your mobility as much as this, things will probably continue to get worse, not better. Get that knee fixed as soon as you can - and then start regaining mobility.It’s just that I haven’t been able to exercise or even walk much and I would like to be on better shape before I start this again.
