I have had a partial knee replacement about 5 yrs. ago and I am still suffering from pain on a daily basis. I have been to serveral doctors and they just want me to increse my cymbolta, which they tell me is for pain management.
I work in a kitchen so on my feet close to 9 hrs. a day. I have also realize that when having a stressful day that the pain in my knees is worse almost to the point where I can't stand.
If anyone has any clues as to how I can get some relief I would appreicate the help.

Hello Patty,
What was the reason for the partial knee replacement surgery?
I am wondering if the condition, which led to the need for the surgery, has worsened. Or if the pain is resulting from a problem with the knee replacement device.
I suggest getting a second opinion from another orthopedic surgeon.
