Orthodesis ie removal of knee joint and fusing of entire leg with no joint.

Hi all, Today Im feeling somewhat so despondent,as Ill be undergoing
an operation soon ie, 22nd June 2012, for the removal of the plate and screws in my
right knee which was done in 2004 and was told that if they,the orthopedic surgeons ,cant loosen the screws, they may have to amputate then.This operation was performed in 2004 and the mere thought of going around on crutches till the end leaves me with so much mixed feelings,
So could anyone out there please advise if there is no alternative to these drastic measures.
God bless
