Hello, New here and looking for inspiration and advice. I am a 66 year old female who has had knee pain for about six years. I was able to continue working for until age 63 (with cortisone shots) and then they quit working and I had to take early retirement. My job was a store manager and I worked long hours on my feet. A rheumatologist put me on prednisone (which was great no pain) and that is where I have been until now. Now … the prednisone is no longer working. I returned to my ortho dr. and received the cortisone shots, in both knees, again. This was a little over 2 weeks ago and they did nothing to relieve the pain. Dr. says I have severe arthritis in both knees and xrays now show bone on bone so my body is ready for knee replacement surgery (not sure my mind is). I am scheduled for another appointment to get the Rooster Shots (anyone had any experience with these). I will be getting them in both knees. Hoping to postpone surgery until the winter.
