Newbie to the Forum. Ive had 8 knee surgeries, 5 on right w 2 being ACL Replacements & 3 on left w 1 being ACL Replacement. I'm in my late 40's and can barely walk because i'm in so much pain. Insurance wont approve TKR's & I'm at a loss as to what i can do. I used to be very active & athletic (tore up my knees playing baseball) and it's very depressing to not be able to do normal things like WALK without being in so much pain. Exercising is difficult & no access to a pool. The pain is getting worse & worse and my QOL is going down hill. I've tried both orthovisc & synvisc which minimally help for about a month or 2. Don't think the pain of getting the shots outweigh the benefits of the shot. Looking for any suggestions on other treatments or therapies that may be helpful w the pain. At this point, I'm desperate & willing to try most anything that will help with the pain.
