currently running at approx 132 years of pain, if possible and for ease of caluculation could you put the number of years in at the end
e.g I had XXXX done in 1995 & then XXX
Total 8 years.

Just so can can quickly punch it in the caluclator.

Depending on how many replied this thread gets, I will post up a running tally everyday.

Well, my knee problems started in 1988. I had my first knee surgery then and did pretty well till 2001 when my knee took a dive and has been giving me grief since then. I have had 4 more surgeries on the same knee since 2001 and still need more. Will it ever end?

My knee problems first started in 1998. Now I'm 4 surgeries later and still hoping that this last surgery will be the end of problems with my left knee-my right knee has the same problem but it doesn't really bother me so I have hope that it will stay that way. So my total number of years with knee problems is almost 6.

Well-

I first experienced severe knee pain after stepping in a flower holder at a local cemetary when I was 12.  So, that will make it 13 years for me.

My left knee problems started at age 10, which was 16 years ago.  My right knee flared up for about a year in there, too.

I feel like I'm one of the lucky ones.  Reading what all of you have dealt with makes my problems seem so tiny.

My knee problems started as the result of a motorcycle crash in 2001.  I'm mostly re-habbed now, but it'll never be near 100% again.  At least I can walk "normal" distances without too much problem, but why I bought a house with 3 floors is still a mystery to me.

Okey dokey,

My right knee ACL recon was in 1993 so thats 10.5 years...

Plus my tibia plateau fracture and meniscus tear on my left knee last June ... so thats another 1 year:

so am I 10.5 or 11.5? I say 11.5, since it feels like eternity!

I have been having knee problems since 1999, at the time the OS I was seeing couldn't really find a reason for my pain and told me to live with it (in a nice way). Didn't receive a diagnosis until 8 months ago.
