    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Cortisone Injection

Initially torn meniscus treated with arthroscopy. Approximately 10 years later pain started gradually worsening every year. Treated with NSAIDS, followed by cortisone injections gradually getting more frequent. Next step was a total knee replacement of right knee. Now left knee is increasingly more painful and being treated with cortisone injections. Physical activity is greatly restricted due to pain. Trying to put off knee replacement of that knee.
