Hi simsadw - Thanks for your question. Can you tell us more about your situation? What was the cause of your need for a knee replacement? Are you under treatment for the osteoarthritis? Have you tried any types of medication or therapy to relieve the pain? Have you considered whether weight loss would be helpful and if so, have you explored any options in that area? The more we understand what you're dealing with, the more we can research possible alternatives to surgery. We look forward to hearing more from you.
