Hello, I am knew to this forum. I am 54 and i was diagnosed this past January with OA in both of my knees. The right one is the worst. I had the Gel One injections in April and they have not helped at all. My doctor told me I could continue with conservative methods such as weight loss, medications, physical therapy, ice, cortisone shots every 3 months or a pain management center. The last resort is knee replacement. I am holding off on that. I have a good amount of weight to lose. I take naprosyn, tramadol, and the diclofenac cream. I was hoping the gel shots would work. Does anyone out there have any uplifting stories to share? I know they say to exercise but my right knee hurts so much after walking on a few steps. I need to get into some non-impact workouts such as water aerobics.
