I had Knee resurfacing about 12 year ago and it helped ,but now I am in a lot of pain.

I have had Back problems for years. Two doctor's would not operate on me . I have 10 verdabra (sp) with no padding, Stenosis, and Arthritis. I cannot take pain medicine as it gives me hallucinations. So I just have to suffer.
