I hope some one can help me with this, I have been suffering with pain in my left knee for some months now and my Doctor referred me to my local Hospital where i have up to now had 2 MRI scans and a x ray. I have seen 3 Surgeons. The first one said that i have a meniscus tear and should have key hole surgery to correct it. The second one said that i have damaged my knee and a splinter of bone is floating about and is the cause of the pain and that I need TKR surgery. The third surgeon think that the problem is arthritis but in my case TKR may not solve the problem.
All three surgeons have seen the same scans and x ray but as you can see have different opinions and i don't know which one to go with.
The pain that i get is a sharp one when i am walking or going up or down stairs when i am sitting or lying down there is no pain at all.
Do my symptoms seem like those that any of you have suffered.
Thank you for any advice
