Arthroscopic Surgery
« on: April 08, 2008, 05:24:44 AM »
I have a question.  I have already had one scope done, and I was wondering if these typed of surgeries take a toll on your knees over time. I am a basketball player, and I hope to play for years to come, but I hope too many scopes dont slow me down. The first surgery I had plica removed, and some other articular cartilaged shaved down, will more of these surgeries promote faster breaking down of cartilage? I am just wondering, I dont evem know if I will need a second surgery. Just trying to get a piece of mind. Thanks

That is a tough question to answer. Even if you have a scope for the same reason, sometimes revovery after is quick and sometimes very slow.
Always work on your muscles and keep them strong, that will save you time if you need surgery and also prevent new damages.
Surgery 6 times left knee torn meniscus, RSDS,chondromalacia, nervdamage cause constant nervpain,chronic inflamm.
Spinaldamage wheeler 100%.
Right knee damaged aug-06, use brace surgery 4/9-07.LCL tear.
