I have had problems with Osteo arthuritus for a very long time----probably 15 to 18 yrs. I have had a knee brace which just feel down my leg because I wore support hose to help my varicose veins. I took any meds drs. prescribed that would help, to perhaps get temporary relief. Supartz shots did help but after a few yrs., they no longer help. So then, I did a Total Right (Stryker) Replacement with Dr. Ronald Stafford. The knee is stronger but I STILL HAVE PAIN! Now, my left knee hurts the same way that the right 1 did. To date, I have had 1 Supartz shot in my left knee and I will probably do another soon. I just wished someone would invent a sire cure for this debil
