Minor Tricompartmenal OA right knee
I'm just looking for some much needed support to be honest and I did post about two weeks ago regarding my condition but have been awaiting X-ray results.
Had telephone consultation with GP on Wednesday to discuss my results regarding knee pain/swelling etc. He advised no torn ligaments but as suspected I had a touch of arthritis:
I went to collect the X-ray report from the surgery yesterday so that I can take to Physio on Wednesday and I was really very upset to see it had been diagnosed as 'minor tricompartmental OA change'.
I immediately did a Google search and found this was my full knee (3 compartments) affected and was really very upset as to be honest it is really very painful and swollen now.
I also feel that my left knee (kneecap) feels uncomfortable occasionally too.
I was diagnosed with lumbar degenerative discs as well as scoliosis (this sounds horrendous I know) and was told not to worry (private hospital in Abu Dhabi told me this) that this wouldn't be a problem.
My GP seems to think its my knee compensating for my back problem and a physio will sort this out but I am worried sick.
I sound as if I am falling to pieces don't I :(
Look forward to any help and advice.
