    I have never had any surgery, but you post in drifting to the back of the board, so this is a 'bump', I do know that others here have had this done, as well as hip replacements too.

    HOpefully someone will be here this evening to give you some advice.

    Good luck lady.....................

    if your knee gets bad enough and you cannot walk,then you need to have it replaced.I will eventually have to have both of mine replaced,but I will fight it to the end.I saw my mom get one of hers replaced and it was VERY painful and she now refuses to get her 2nd one done.Alot of people do have wonderful results though.

    thanks shirl,and everyone else,i dont know what to do,but theres no immidiate rush,the doc has given me a month on these different painkillers,and then we will decide.he has also mentioned steroid injections in my knee,anybody know anything about these!
