Was told 10 yrs ago I'd need knee replacement on both knees due to misalignment/bones rubbing.Is it better to wait until necessary or do it sooner?

Was told 10 yrs ago I'd need knee replacement on both knees due to misalignment/bones rubbing.Is it better to wait until necessary or do it sooner?

Depends: A 27 year old would definitely be better to hold off on having a knee replacement as long as possible. This is in part because they usually last 15 years or so, and so you would presumably need several revisions throughout your life. The other option to correct your malalignment would be to do a osteotimy to correct the problem and you may be able to do better as well. ...Read more

If you know you have a 'pvd' then it is not an emergency. However, 'floaters', and/or 'flashing lights', the symptoms suggesting a pvd, should be seen by an eye doctor within 24 hours. Beware vision decrease/defect = concern for retinal detachment = emergency. ...Read more

Get Rx: Acne this severe always requires a physician's intervention; acne on a man's trunk usually doesn't respond to anything less than a systemic antibiotic, and if it's severe, you may be offered one of the very strong rx's such as Accutane that only a dermatologist can write for.

Also, I do suggest avoiding commonly allergic foods when a child is on antibiotics or has a GI illness. ...Read more
