Subject: Career advise

I'm a 46 year old man and I have severe OA of my right knee,

I've had a MFX trochlear grove, my knee is still painful, snapping and popping

My question is,

Do I struggle on in the job I enjoy (forklift emgineer) which could most possibly make my condition worse or do I bite the bullet and try looking for a desk job

You have to do what is best for you. Taff if your job is going to make your situation worse, i would suggest having a good long think and try to find a job that you may enjoy.
Is there maybe another position in your company that may suit you better??
It must be so difficult for you, hope you come to the best decision for you.
