Hi everyone, I’m interested in speaking to anyone who has had a TKR in their 40’s. I have bi-lateral valgus knee (knock-kneed). I had my first surgery @ 15 for a knee dislocation. I’ve had 2 subsequent surgeries on my right knee for torn meniscus, had a lateral release, medial reefing. I’ve tried every viscosupplementation there is, I’ve tried cortisone, I’m using a custom offloading brace. I’m at my wits end. My OS has said only thing left for me is replacement but says I’m too young & he won’t do. He says I’ll need a revision in 15-20 years & revisions never get the results of an original replacement. I’m crippled to the point of not being able to go on vacation because I can’t walk more than a few blocks, am in tears at the end of every day & can’t sleep at night, no amusement parks...the list goes on. I’ve been at a job that I love for the past 18 years but if I don’t get some help fast, I won’t be walking in a year, which means I won’t have a job. I am in debilitating, unrelenting pain. I know there is a surgeon search on here but I’m specifically interested in surgeons willing to look at replacement in a younger patient. I reside in California. Any referrals & advice would be greatly welcomed & appreciated!
