Tore meniscus 20 plus years ago. Had 2surgeries which helped. Over the years have developed severe osteo. Can due longer take nisaiids due to gi bleed. At 88 not candidate for knee replacement due to heart issues. Viscosupplementation, brace and Percocet help some. Live on a ranch and want to stay active as long as possible.
