I have ongoing problems with my knee, and it's affecting my employment. What are my options?
Within the last two years I have had a full knee replacement and a year later revision surgery to correct a problem. I am now told that it was unsuccessful and I will have flexion problems and endure swelling when walking on it for more than 20 mins. I am 55 years of age still feeling full of life an ex firefighter and it's affecting my health and well being. I can sit down to work only if I can extend my knee almost to straight with limited bend. Trying to bend is very painful. Walking upstairs is it too bad coming down a struggle. Not exactly a sure bet for getting employment. Surgeon has said he can do no more for me and I have to get on with it. Easier said than done, what are my options for help I need an income .
