    I work 50 hrs + a week. Horrible pain most of the time. It brings me to tears. I am a manager at a food place so I am in my legs constantly.

    I have bone-on-bone in the right knee and almost also in the left knee now. I move as much as I can but have to put my feet up each evening to help relieve some of the pain. The longer I am on my feet, the more my knees hurt and lower legs swell. Dr said he won’t do surgery until I loose at least 100 pounds.

    I can do almost anything I want sportwise but I am stiff and sore if I play basketball, volleyball or football with the knee the next day or after depending on how hard I played.
