did you have a chondroplasty
« on: August 16, 2014, 01:50:50 PM »
Thinking of getting one because MRI didn't really show anything and I have exhausted my options for a year. I'm hoping they find something torn because I get a pinching/ sharp pain medial, but worst case he will scrape the patella. Never been so frustrated in my life

In this thread you will find a series of opinions on both sides:

My personal experience with it was a disaster... but a few people are mentioning good results...

Disaster here, as well.  Please read the post MDAL posted the link to, you'll find my story there. 

I read your other posts and see you are very active, doing Ironman's, etc.  Take your time deciding on your course of action to make sure you will still be able to do the things you love.
