I have end stage Osteoarthritis in both knees. Bone on bone. I was originally 447 lbs. I have lost some weight but need to lose more. Everyday I’m in chronic pain and mobility is a big issue. The diflonac I was taking has caused stage 3 kidney damage. So now I’m afraid to take anything. And yet it helped with swelling. But I need help!!! The pain is unbearable. I’m unable to sleep nights on end!
