Good luck with your knees.I lost my job in Jan 2009.Without any insurance and no help I suffer today still with bone on bone in my left knee. Darn doctor told me when I had insurance I was too young. Now I am disabled and 57 was your age when diagnosed. Sad I have to use carts when I go to grocery stores,because I can't walk it now. I swear if doctors had to live with the pain they would think twice. Plus I have been told there are replacements that can last 30 years.Surely I will be dead by that time so I wont wear it outView Thread
