I have osteoarthritis in both knees. but as soon as a month ago...I fell and injured my right knee. I have been having acupuncture and PT on this knee.

That is when I was told both my knees are bone on bone.

I have known for a long time there was something wrong.

cortisone I am allergic too...so that is out.

doctors want me to have a total knee replacement on the right for know.

I am awakened in the night from sleep with pain in left knee...now.
