@WeeEileen You will need a lot of patience it has been 5 months since my op and although still not fully healed it is definitely better. I still have numbness at base of thumb, but OT said it can take up to 12 months to fully heal. The worst part for me was being in a cast for 8 weeks, its difficult with only the use of one hand. I need my left hand done as well and will now definitely consider it. Good luck.

You could see a masseur who specialises in soft tissue massage, which might help the problems on the sides of your knee. It could be your ligaments. Doesn’t sound like typical osteo of the knee, which gives you a severe ache actually where the kneecap is. Hope you can get it sorted.
