I’m so sorry to hear about that. 🙁 I was hit and run over by a truck and my left knee is in bad shape. But I hear this so often (and know that we are prone to osteoporosis and high pain levels), so I just try to get by! I do know of one patient who has had most every joint replaced that she has! She is doing “OK”, but she seems to be a rare bird in this crowd! Do you have a good pain doctor?
