... Hi group,
Has anyone had any good results through arthroscopic sx for their chrondomalacia? Or has anyone been scoped for any knee problem?? I want to know what to expect post-surgery. Can you get up and walk right after the procedure is done or do you need crutches?
I am having it done in 2 weeks. I would appreciate a quick answer if you have time.

... They told ne to ice, take an anti-inflamatory and that in time the fluid would dry up. I'm still waiting for that to happen. They said as long as I don't ice and do anything to get the fluid down, it won't go away. I'm in my late 40's. Getting old is something else :)

The orthopod said that there is only a 40% chance of this sx being able to help the chrondo or kneecap.

But always there, I finally went to an orthopedist and he said I was correct, when I said I thought I had Chrondomalacia. He said to keep taking my glucosamine every day and walking was good...
