I am 57 year old male.I have OA in left and right knees.The left knee I am in constant pain.take numerous medication.Tramadol being the main pain tablet.Unfortunately the Tramadol only eases the pain slightly for up to a couple hours.Been told to give up work.Due to morgage etc just cannot, have to struggle on.Wont be considered for surgery till been off work at least 6 months and cant walk more thasn 100 yards.This means I will be in constant pain till god knows when!I know there must be thousands of us but why can I not have an op? At least it would get me thro' the rest of my working years.At times I just wish I was dead.It is causing friction at home, I have stopped talking about it.Sorry for the moaning but had to get off my chest.
