Suffering from erosion of cartilage in knee, lower back. Advice? - Online Doctor Chats
How are you doing?
fine thank you
How can I help you?
which joint is involved?
left knee and lower back
how old are you?
i suffered from the problem 2 years back as well
Cartilage cannot regenerate
ok then what
but we can give you a few supplements that should help
like hyalauronic acid supplements
Have you seen an orthopedic surgeon?
i have visited local orthopedician who has given me some supplements
can you tell me the names/
Check if any of them have hyalauronic acid
That should help
but tell me whether i need to take these supplements life long
Also, i would like you to get an opinion from an orthopedic surgeon on our panel
No i dont think so
you neednt take them lifelong
we have orthos on our panel with 10-15 years of experience
then how will i be relieved of pain and stiff
We'll have to know what is causing this
did your physician tell you why it has happened
NO NOT REALLY
then we need to find out
you're too young to have osteoarthritis
other causes of arthritis
I AM 31
need to be ruled out by other tests
yeah osteoarthritis affects people in their 60s and later
OK I AM REALLY CONFUSED
Should I call you
Maybe I can explain it better
Can I confirm your number
i'll call you
should i close this chat
