Bone on bone OA at 22
Hello, just hoping anyone can relate or has any advice please?
I have secondary osteoarthritis caused by my knee constantly partially dislocating since the age of 13. I have had 5 operations to try and fix this (the last one being microfracture) which have all helped for a few months but it has then just gone back to being agony.
I am now 22 and am being told by consultants that there are limited options left, but the thought of carrying on like this with no other option makes life not worth living.
I just wanted to see if there are any young people out there with joint replacements and what was the process of getting them? Or has anyone had rare surgeries that have prolonged the need for a knee replacement? I would be so grateful for any information🙌
Thank you and my heart goes out to anyone suffering in secret.
