I am a 53 year old overweight male that has no MCL or ACL in my knee from a motorcycle accident back in 1976. I have had the "chicken shots" injections in my knee which lasted for about six months. I was fitted for a knee brace but it kills my lower back to wear it. I know losing weight will help and I use the recumbent bike at least four times a week. This is the only kind of exercise that doesn't hurt my knee. My knee is so stiff in the morning that I can't hardly bend it which makes me think I may have some arthritis in it too. I do not want a knee replacement and my orthopedic doctor didn't advise it because of my age. Is there some kind of repair surgery that can be done? If so, what is the rehab time and what kind of luck do people have afterwards?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
