I am worried that I will be suffering from knee pain from my past surgeries.
1. Left Acl Reconstruction using the petellar from my right knee.
2. Right Acl reconstruction using three tendons from the back of my knee
3 Minor Meniscus repair in my right knee
I was suffering a lot prior to my last surgery, but Now that they are "Fixed" I hope I do not have to suffer through my career.
I was in the Navy for 6 years and if you were wondering how did this all happend.
I bought expensive supportive shoes so I hope it helps...if worst comes to worst I will have to wear my braces on both legs.
Does anyone have and similar problems? How do you deal with the day when you are on your feet all day?
