So after suffering from some stubborn knee pain for a little while I decided to get it checked out for a diagnosis. Turns out that I have a degenerative condition in my left knee that is causing softening of the cartiledge in the joint. Other than a constant limp, it's causing poor tracking of the patella which causes constant aching pain. Doctor said that with physio to strengthen the joint I can expect to slow the process but within 10 years I will most likely have to call it quits. I'm 28. Good thing I've been doing so much consulting work recently I suppose. Has anyone had to deal with this sort of thing before? I'm having trouble from a psychological perspective more than anything else.
