Re: help anybody for continual suspected meniscus

Thanks Robbie, I appreciate your reply, I'm sorry to hear about the rough time you've been having, how long has it been a problem? For myself, the problem with an arthroscopy is that invetiably, when a doc sees something they will end up 'trimming' some part of my mesnicus, this treatment almost certainly leads to OA of the knee at some later date, there are more sophisticated operations out there (or so I read), but I have no idea of how good those will be at solving meniscal probs and reducing (as opposed to increasing) future risk of OA in the knee. it just seems to be a minefield, and here in the UK it is very difficult to get optimum treatment on the NHS, even if you can pay, it is still incredibly hard to know who to trust and what to do!!!
