    Which knee first?

    My left knee has been diagnosed as having a T2 prolongation near the femoral attachment that may represent post surgical change (ACL replacement 9 years ago) or partial tearing.
    My right knee has a complex tear of the body and posterior horn of the medial meniscus with a free edge component and a horizontal tear, a portion of which extends to the posterior periphery.
    The left knee is the most painful, and the pain has not decreased after two rounds of methylprednisone acetate 40 mg shots. The right knee only hurts when I move or twist the wrong way.
    I intend to have surgery on both knees, but I am wondering which knee should be first? The most painful, or the one with the complex tear?
    Has anyone else been in this situation? Thanks.
