After a visit to the specialist today, I was informed that he has given joint replacements to people with knees better than mine. It is quite devastating to find out that I not only do I have arthritis, but that it is severe and will be progressive.
I have never had sore knees and have played top level sport for years.
I am in limbo not knowing what exercise I can do -as the information from the physiotherapist and the specialist conflict!!
The physio said biking was good, the specialist said I may be able to jog with patellofemoral arthritis but I should stay away from the bike and the rowing machine.
I do not know which advice to take!!
I do know I want to keep moving and stay as healthy as I can.
