I’m a heavy guy at 389 lbs. How do you treat your big line men with cartilage worn out in the knees? My doctor said because of my size, they could not replace the knee and I asked how do they treat football line men then. Maybe you can open my eyes.
Some physicians will do knee replacements on heavy patients. However, the complication risk is unacceptably high for most of us. I have a BMI limit of 40. Some patient can get significant pain relief from weight loss.
