Re: knee athroscopy
When I have had arthroscopy it took care of my pain for 2-4 years. But my pain came from wear and tear on the joint. After time the cart. will break loose again and that is what caused my the pain.
My arthroscopy repaired the joint but it didn't return it to the original state. It shaved the cart. and removed loose bodies.
You may have relief for longer than me but as long as there is pressure on the joint it will continue to wear.
