Too young for partial knee replacement?
I am 52 this week, and have bone on bone OA in my knee, made worse by a recent fall on it.
I saw an orthopaedic consultant for the first time today who has recommended conservative management for now. Physio ( which I have been having anyway, mainly by phone ) and a steroid injection in 4 weeks. He also gave me a knee brace
As a midwife and dog owner my life is quite active , and I’m in a fair bit of pain, and everything makes me so much more tired than it used to.
What is everyone’s thoughts on age and (
partial) knee replacement please? Apparently if I have it done now, I will have to have it redone in later life which will be a much more complex operation .
Thank you for reading
