Can't walk very far or for long periods of time.Hard to bend both knees.Range of motion is severely limited.Have had shots in both knees recently and am getting some relief with the injections.Dr. says the injections will become less helpful and i need knee replacement surgery but i am reluctant to have it done.I have heard too many stories where it has made it worse instead of better and i am 68 years old.
