I'm not sorry I didn't wait as I knew this was not going to get better - only worse. I had two cortisone shots and they helped for a few months. I would have done it even sooner, but had a trip planned for over a year and wasn't sure I would be in good enough shape for that traveling. So opted for the shot to get me through and then made arrangements for the surgery. I actually went just 14 months from the first time I felt any pain and it was thought that it was just the meniscus. I saw two Orthos and both would not repair the meniscus because they said I was going to need the replacement soon and did not want to do two surgeries. My brother-in-law had the same thing and had his meniscus repaired and did well for two months. I told him he would be back for the replacement and that he was.
If you have a lot of pain and it is slowing your life down as I could see what was happening to me I would say go for it and get it over. It is sure not a picnic, but if it needs to be done don't suffer any longer than you need to.
