I've been wondering how you're doing Laura? Hope you have found some relief for those knees. I've been dealing with bad knees for years. Done the cortisone and Euflexa for the last 18 months, which gets me some relief. Didn't realize just how bad the pain was until it was gone. I just got used to being in constant pain. But I know I'm looking at replacements sooner rather than later. I've been trying to put it off as long as possible, but I'm beginning to come around to the idea that I would rather be pain free now while I'm still young enough to get back to doing the things I love, even if it means that I'll have to have them replaced more than once. Problem is, I'm only 52 and I've heard that the pain is way worse when you have to replace a replacement. And since they only last 10-15 years with a very active person, I know I'll be replacing the replacements if I'm lucky enough to live that long. But I'm definitely coming around.
