Insurance Approved.....
« on: September 11, 2006, 06:14:36 PM »
My insurance has just approved my Medial Meniscus Transplant & Osteochondral Alloograft of Femoral Condyle on Medial Side. My problem is I am not fully sure if I should go through with it. I am presently officiatting high school football until the end of October and will make my decision then. Knee bothers me daily, and I have to watch what I do on the field when officiatting. I referee, so my running is minimal. Some days are better than others, but sleeping is not a problem but I do generally feel a slight pain with every step I take.
    I am just scared if I have this done I will be worse off in the long run. I know the rehab is ling but if this fails I am sure it will be, Hello TKR. Just want some thoughts on what everyone thinks.

It's always hard to know what decisions to make in life especially concerning our health because surgical intervention is not always the answer.  Be thankful that you atleast have the option to ponder.  My son who needs a autograft transplant and has been waiting many many months for a decision on whether or not he can even have this operation.  I know my response is of no help, but I understand that these types of decisions are hard to make.  Good luck.
My 17 year old son had the OATS procedure on November 29th, 2006.  He has two previous scopes on the right knee and one on the left.
