patela knee pain

Recommended Posts

Dear Dr. Mark, I've searched this forum high and low for the pain I am experiencing but couldn't find anything for my ailment. I'm 52 years old and my right patela is killing me, I weigh 170 and stand 5'-9" so I don't think my weight is an issue? I did suffer from Osgood Sclatter disease when I turned 11, the pain finally got to bad to play football, wrestle,so I had to quit those activities. However It still wasn't bad enough to keep me off my bike and motorcycle. This past year has been difficult for my knee, and has been getting worse to the point of climbing stairs is a painful chore. Could this be the dreaded arthritis I'm fearing? Or do I see an Orthopedic doc to see if surgery is an option. Thanks in advance.
