Yes it is a formal written warning from my employer. i have had 4 lots of surgery since November 2017.My sickness prior to this was no days off sick.
Yes I had arthroscopic arthrolysis and debridment of left knee at the end of September. It has improved my flexion from 70 degrees to 96.
I still have significant discomfort

@gator1965 That's a lot of pressure to be under.
Your flexion is still not optimal of course, they generally want it to be at least 120°. I think mine is at around 112° now, but as I said, I do not have any discomfort. The other knee that was done about 6 years ago has slightly better flex but when I do much walking that one does hurt. I used a different surgeon and got a different knee for that one.
Does your doctor have any idea what is causing the discomfort? I would want to know that. I had a friend who went two years with pain before she found a highly rated orthopedic surgeon, and he found the problem and fixed it. I hope you will find a surgeon who can do the same for you.
