I am 20 years old and I have yet to get a knee replacement, but due to the significant damage that I have done to my knee I have to get one. I have had 2 knee surgeries and the 2nd one that I had was because I tore my lateral and medial meniscus and my knee cap was out of place. This resulted in a lateral release. My surgeon is trying to prolong me going into surgery by giving me "chicken shots". I just finished getting them yesterday. They take up to a month to actually start working and supposedly they have great results! Most surgeons do not like to give someone a knee replacement because it is such an evasive surgery. I'm guessing that you have had a knee reconstruction? I am also going to pt 3 times a week. It does help especially with my swelling. I wish you all the best. :)
