But once he became a hermit 5 years later and stopped pretty much doing anything, that high level of inactivity is most likely what made his knee problem worse.
Yup, and the fact that the doctor tells him he has no cartilage in his knee is indicative of arthritis. And depending on the type of arthritis it is, it can take effect years after an injury and/or worsen due to inactivity.

Luckily none of this is coming from experience on my end.
