| | Why do my knees buckle?
I was diagnosed many years ago with chondromalcia in both knees and had to have Arthoroscopic surgery on the right one. The surgeon did a lateral release b/c my kneecap was out of alignment. It took me a long time to heal and the postop pain was terrible. For a long time now, I've had buckling in both knees when I walk. My thigh muscles are built up from riding the stationary bike and walking on the treadmill. My knees are now arthritic and I worry that I'll have a serious fall when my knees buckle. Does anyone else have this problem? If so, what advice have you gotten? I know I'll have to see the Orthopedist soon and I don't really want a TKR. Thanks in advance for any input. Sue
