TQC, needing some timing advice here. |
So, my knees are a wreck, particularly the right. There is a huge tear from roughly about two years ago that has progressively been getting worse. It usually doesn't bug me too much since I'm not active or pounding on it, but as my classes (which require me on my feet for extended times) and my future career get harder and more hours are put on me, it's getting worse. My other knee, while it does not have a tear as far as I know, moves side to side and slides around painfully enough to bother me now.
I'm probably going to need to go in and get surgery on the right at least, but I'm wondering if I should get it after this quarter ends and I only have one more to do, but will still be on my feet for some classes, or wait until I graduate, but will be needing to pay off more loans and recovering while I could be working?
Also, those of you out there who have had your knees worked on, how long were you down for? What was your recovery like?
