Re: How many times can I get a knee arthroscopic?
I have had about 15 knee surgeries - about 12 of them arthroscopic and about 10 on one knee (rt). I go in every 2-3 years for an arthroscopy to "clean out" some of the damage. It keeps my knee functioning well. My first knee surgery was at 14 and I'm now 42. I see my orthopedic knee surgeon next week and I'm betting I'm up for another arthroscopy before the end of the year.
Rt thumb fusion '13. R&L thumb arthroplasty '12 ; RT TKR & Bilat CTS' 11. Fusions: L5-S1('87), L4-S1('93), C5-C7('06), L3-S1('10), C4-C5('13). C5-C7 foraminotomy '08
