It's been a long time since I fenced, but I hope to god you're doing electic, right? Otherwise, I can't imagine how one could have 3 weapons of any type "fail". I never had any problems with my knees, but then I got into fencing when I was about 8, and stopped sometime in HS. My school didn't have a team, and it was just taking up too much time.
Looking back, I kinda wish I had kept up with it. I was *very* good for my age, winning a few HS competitions when I was in Jr High, and competing well against A fencers when unranked in open tournaments. Who knows. My sister competed in the nationals for the UCSD fencing team, and I was always much better then her (she's why I learned to fight lefties very well since she's left handed, but I think the advantage handicapped her at higher levels). I just totally lost interest.
Besides. Fighting live steel at Ren faires is far more likely to get you laid... :)
