I guess you could say I have trauma induced OA. I never had any problems until I twisted my knee last May and tore my meniscus. Ever since then its been a thorn in my side. I had a Fulkerson/LR and patella debridement on my right knee and the grinding is gone. Hopefully when I start WB the pain will be gone too! I notice a lot of grinding in my left knee now. No pain though (knock on wood).

I know this may sound an obvious question but is trauma induced osteoarthritis when you damage or loose cartlidge because of a trauma/accident and therefore have the symtoms of osteoarthritis. If this is the case then I must have this as there is not much cartlidge left in my left knee after a complete knee disclocation.

The consultants and physios often ask me how I cope with the pain but to be honest there is no pain in normal day to day life. Just when I push the physio and then its a a soft tissue/muscle sort of pain.

Am I lucky,
Will the pains come in later life,

I do get nasty clunks and grinding/crunching, perhaps when/if I loose the limp and start using the leg properly I will get the full osteoarthritis symptoms.

Thanks for the reply.

Something to look forward to. (not)
I only had one disclocation but it was a biggie snapping all for ligaments but at least I can say I have had my left foot under my right armpit which is a bit unusual even for a gymnast. :o

oh believe me I know what dislocations are like :'( both mine did it all time and went back into place afterwards, so you can imagine years of that happening can cause truama to the knees.....I had a half knee replacement in feb last year and am only just getting over that one and am having my other knee done on thursday...you may not get any pain at all or you may get a lot or you may only get a bit....its different for each person.....i have put a page about my condition on my personal website if you would like to take a look...

An open LOA is a lysis of adhesions (they did an open incision and cut out scar tissue) and the PKR is a partial knee replacement. I know that I will have more surgeries down the road but I really hope that it is a long, long way down that road. lol

Yep, PKR is half of a total knee replacement. I am in a clinical trial for a new kind of PKR and it is less destructive and leaves more bone stock.
