A lot of us are sick of them because we've read the same posts over and over ad nauseam! Not to mention the fact that they often have nothing to do with the OP.

I don't know why some of you just can't scroll by and need to voice complaints...

And everyone often wanders from the main topic and with these joints, they are all connected....one goes wrong and can cause many of the others to go too.

There are some here I don't want to read or take their advice and I know how to scroll by.

No. Everyone does not do that! In fact, most people don't.

Boy, we use Everyone and Most and Many like we know it all, don't we. We really have no clue how many do what, unless we are polling them all.

Get a 2nd opinion but try to find a dr that specializes in that sport. Just because its a knee injury doesnt mean all orthopedists will understand the specific stresses your specific sport puts on the knee. How old are you and do you still participate in that sport? For ex, figure skaters and ballet dancers have specific knee problems and there are very few orthopedists that understand the dynamics involved. Look at the pro teams and which drs they use if your sport is a team sport. Most of those drs will see reg humans. And MRIs dont always show all problems. Daughter of a good friend was a figure skater having severe knee pain. MRI was neg. the MD scoped the knee and found no cartilage in part of the joint. Never shown on the MRI.

As I hear so much even though we're told "no cartilage" we still have some as long as we are walking and bending knee(s)..if we had NONE, we could not bend or walk etc. Bones would be totally rubbing on bones. I continue to work to keep what cartilage I have to hopefully regrow more.

As you have been told every time you make this claim, your understanding of what it means to be bone on bone and have no cartilage left is wrong

There is no role for opinion here.....

A person can absolutely be bone on bone and have essentially no remaining cartilage certainty not enough to matter and still bend their knees just fine

Conversely, one can have significant remaining cartilage volume and not be able to bend their knees at all

You keep making this erroneous claim despite the clear lack of any semblance of support for this misguided lack of understanding regarding physiology

In the same vein, you can keep hoping to “regrow “ cartilage....keep on hoping because it ain’t gonna happen

No way. No how

Since you don't live in my body or walk in my shoes, you have no idea of what I experience...and yes I live with hope vs more knives.

What body you live in doesn’t change the fact that your notions on bone on bone are wrong or that it is impossible to grow new cartilage

The same rules apply to all bodies

something I found in a home remedy book that really helped me and my arthritis is soak some golden seedless raisins in some gin and wait til the gin evaporates and then eat 9 raisins per day and guess what ? it works at keeping some of the arthritic pain away . that might help your knee .
