|Tomorrow I go under the scope to get a chunk of dead bone, floating around my left knee joint, removed. My ortho diagnosed the condition as osteochondritin dissecans. This means that at some point a portion of my bone tissue suffered some trauma, and the blood supply was cut off to it as a result, and that portion of bone just died and is now sitting in there attached to ligament (or some other tissue) and not to any other bone.
So they're going to scope me out. They're saying recovery could be as little as two weeks or up to as much as three months.
Anyone else have this procedure done for this reason and willing to share your experience/recovery time/anecdote?
Thanks in advance for any info offered.
