Well, it's been about 3 years since then and I'm doing alright. I decided against surgery. I do experience "knee locking" and this happens infrequently but when it happens it goes on for about 3 weeks at a time. The severity of the locking changes. Sometimes it's mild and I can adjust my knee a certain way to resume "normal" ROM. Other times, it will stay stuck for several hours and I literally have to hop around. Recently, I've been LOCK FREE for over 3 months (I've found that February-April are times that my knee starts to act up). Overall, my knee lock-ups aren't horrible...but they have required me to REALLY LISTEN to my knee.
I'm still really active. I'm diligent with my PT exercises. I teach fitness classes, run-jog, inline skate, bike, hike, weight train (during the summer I put in about 100-130 miles of different activities per week). I do have to monitor my knees on all activities but I've been able to maintain my fitness level at age 43. I guess I had to learn to work with my knee limitations, which took me about 3 years to do.
How much is your current condition affecting your life? Are you a person who loves to move your body? For me, I try to avoid any surgery if possible. Even though knee scopes are supposedly easy to do and easy to recover from...it took me a very long time to recover from my one and only knee scope.
I hope this helps. Let me know your progress and thoughts! Best Wishes to you on your doctor visit tomorrow.
