I would suggest a sports doctor that handles sports injuries. Since you've been overtaxing your knee with activities, he could give you better advice -- It's what he does. And if you don't like what you find, get a second opinion.

I'll also add that knee surgery doesn't always help. You'll probably have to change your sport to swimming - Less stress on the knees.

Running is quite hard on the knees, that exercise may be something you cross-off your list.

I would get an xray of the knee, that will most likely give you a good snapshot of what is going on. I had an xray of my creaky knees at about age 30-something.........knee pain, the cartilage in both knees was basically gone.

btw I have a high deductible HMO.

I appreciate everyone's input.
Good job!
