Partial Medial Menisectomy
« on: March 13, 2013, 03:07:31 AM »

I am totally new to this website.  I am 50 yrs old, female, and next Monday I will be having a bilateral knee arthroscopy with partial medial menisectomy and articular cartilage debridement on my left knee.  Probably just debridement on my right knee.  I am an active person and I am a bit scared.  What can I expect?  I already have some arthritis which my orthopedic surgeon states has probably been brewing for about 10 years.  I am a nurse and am on my feet much of the day.  Never had any issues until about 6 months ago when I developed a Baker's cyst behind my left knee.  Now, 6 months later I have swollen knees bilaterally, wear braces just to walk straight and everything from my knees to my feet hurt!!  I have received 2 steroid injections into my left knee.  One was actually beneficial but I do not feel the second gave me any relief except for the local.  I would like some advice as to what I can expect after this type of outpatient surgery.  Thanks for any and all input.
