Pkr info needed

I am possibly looking at Patellofemoral Replacement(pkr). I have grade 4 chondromalacia and we have tried everything else. At age 35 I am to the point I need a crutch for assistance to get around. Has anyone had this done and if so, what was the outcome? How long in the hospital, how long on crutches, etc? I am also developing cartliage loss at the articular surface of the medial femoral along with some fissuring arounf the lateral femoral. Would this type of pkr still be ok for all of this since pain is at the kneecap area? Also where is your pain located and what are your symptoms?
