    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Strengthening Exercises, Gabapentin, Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate, Viscosupplementation Injection, Swimming

No injury...Progressive loss of cushioning between knee bones. Nothing helps much but the cortisone injections. I have been told I will need knee replacement surgery & I'm trying to lose weight first to speed up the recovery.
