OC Allograft or bicompartmental PKR
Hi yall, 40 year old mom who works as a nurse. Had a slip and fall 8 months ago, and got an oc impaction fracture of the distal MFC. OS recommended MFX surgery, ok I didnt know a lot about it (should of researched it) had the surgery and was in more pain than before suregery after 4 months of pain OS ordered another MRI turns out the MFX FAILED, ok what now? He refered me to a sports med specialist at Baptist Hospital (world renowed). I had the appt with her the first of the week, she said My defect is large and MFX shouldnt have even been attempted. It is 3cm x 1.5 cm, she recommended Osteochondral Allograft, due to the fact that my defect is too large for OATS autograft, and she feels like ACI is not a viable option because my defect is grade 4 and involves a fracture of the bone. However she wants to discuss my case with one of her partners due to the fact I have patellofemoral OA, and may benefit from a bicompartmental PKR. I really really dont want to go that route, Ive researched it alot and it just dont sit well with me. Anyone in the same boat as me or with some advise for me I would really appreciate it. Thank you guys in advance for #1 listen to me ramble and #2 giving me some advice.
Peace & Love
