Now I walk with a cane although I did have an unloader brace
that worked for 3 years. I have severe post traumatic osteoarthritis
. I am now 50 years old and want to have a total knee replacement. I have gained a lot of weight which of course adds to the problems. Orthopedic surgeons all are very reluctant to treat me, probably due to my history of infection. I want to really enjoy my 50s!
