Patella-Fermoral Arthritis

Does anyone have end-stage patella-femoral arthritis? (My heading has incorrect spelling b/c I typed too fast and I couldn't go back and correct it...my apologies)

Just got back from the doctor and I, too, have patella femoral arthritis. Don't know what stage it is but he prescribed a physical therapist so that I can strengthen the muscles in my knees and hips. My knees have had a grinding sound since high school but I never went to the doctor for it until now. It bothers me to walk up steps, get up from a sitting position or from the floor (which I avoid at all costs) I will update on how the therapy goes. Anyone else have this and did an elliptical help? I am considering getting one.

Re: Patella-Fermoral Arthritis

I guess that is what I have now on my "good" knee. I am doing PT exercises and mostly riding the incumbent bike every day for 30 to 40 minutes. The pain from that is not as bad as the pain from the TKR of well over seven months.
