    Hi
    I am an ENT doctor from Norway. I have had kneepain since I was about 24 years old. I am 36 now, and 30 kg heavier. I have been examined by orthopaedics who have studied MR pictures and done arthroscopy. The diagnosis was chondromalacia grade 3 and they found a hole/break in the cartilage at the tibial plateau right knee. They recommended glucoseamines and to start cycling and swimming instead of jogging.
    That caused only bloody stools, and did not have any effect on my kneepain.
    I have knowledge about how cartilage in the knee heals, and I know that I have a big problem.
    Since I am not a professional athlete, orthopaedics doesnt seem to be interested in helping me. “You are walking alright”, was one of the comments I got, when I was 24 and in good shape.
    I have checked certain treatments like autotransplants and hyaluronic injections, but the orthopaedics I have discussed it with, doesnt seem to be too enthusiastic about it.
    I just want to get your opinion on what you think is the best approach to solve the problem (if there is a solution at all).

    Appreciate your opinion!

    Sincerely
    Thomas Risanger
