    If you would like I know someone in Cananda who works for Biomet which is probably the third or fourth largest manufacturer of orthopedic products in the world. She will be able to provide the names of other respected surgeons in your neck of the woods-that is if you wish to obtain another opinion. I agree with some of the other opinions-you need to think about future mobility and function.

    War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse. A man who has nothing which he cares about more than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the existing of better men than himself.

    Huss:

    When I was younger I had my meniscus removed. That was one of the three surgeries I've had on my knees. I haven't had meniscus for 30 years. I am in constant pain and am limited in any PT I do. Regular work that requires certain movements is brutal. Winter (walking through snow - which in my opinion is unnatural and ungodly ) is especially painful...as is mud season.

    My point is - if it were me - I wouldn't let anyone remove my meniscus again. In 1970, it was they knew how to do. Now I believe there are options.

    Two knee surgerys and one to go...Hockey and running....I take an iboprofin for the swelling I get when I strain it. I used to do marathons...not anymore...running is long gone from my daily routine...now I bike or rollerblade. I am afraid when I get older knee replacement is the way to go. I feel pain every day especially in the AM. But as you get older ..the pain seems bearable...heck..now I have to worry about going to the bathroom
