Coming back after knee surgery

  1. Coming back after knee surgery

    In June 2017 at that time I had a large loose body taken out along with a fix to my meniscus. was doing well for about two month post-surgery then started having issues again, locking, catching , clicking, giving out, etc. so I followed up with my Dr. and went for a follow up MRI. had that don in OCT finally was able to see home in NOV and he said I will need OATS surgery. he does not handle many OATS surgeries so he referred me to 2 other Drs. unfortunately neither took my insurance but I was able to find a Dr. that did. I saw him yesterday and he is recommending a MEGA OATS procedure. both the femur and the tibia are bone on bone.

    I had the surgery March 8th Here are some pictures of the defect.
