upto now I've done pretty well for a 68 (aaaarrrrggghhh) year old. However, been on Prednisone for a few years and have developed OsteoA in my right knee. Surgeon says he will do a full knee replacement but I'm pretty unconvinced about surgery. The main pain is sometimes the outer bones grate and give a shooting pain. Just wondering is there anything easier than FKR or can anyone recommend a good knee brace to give stability and relief.
