Answer:

Has your surgeon told you what is causing the pain or what prognosis there is?

With cartilage removal you get instant osteoarthritis - so the pain is certainly that, but possibly other things as well.

Answer:

Several types of lubricating injections are available that may help with this...Synvisc is one I can think of.
