    Total knee replacement for young adults

    I am a 22 year old male. I have suffered from knee dislocations for almost 12 years now. I have had 4 total knee surgeries and was wondering if anyone knew young adults that have had a total knee replacement and how it went. Please let me know the age and their condition.

    Re: Total knee replacement for young adults

    I am 20 years old and I have yet to get a knee replacement, but due to the significant damage that I have done to my knee I have to get one. I have had 2 knee surgeries and the 2nd one that I had was because I tore my lateral and medial meniscus and my knee cap was out of place. This resulted in a lateral release. My surgeon is trying to prolong me going into surgery by giving me "chicken shots". I just finished getting them yesterday. They take up to a month to actually start working and supposedly they have great results! Most surgeons do not like to give someone a knee replacement because it is such an evasive surgery. I'm guessing that you have had a knee reconstruction? I am also going to pt 3 times a week. It does help especially with my swelling. I wish you all the best.

    Thanks for the reply. I have had 4 total knee surgeries including a lateral release, TTT, knee reconstruction and the latest was a medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction. My knee continues to dislocate and is getting worse. I go to my OS on Thursday to discuss other treatments. I was in pt for 2 years before my first operation and now I work out my leg as much as I can but still cant get my quads up to shape. Hope all works out for you.
