I'm a CNA I work 8 to 12 hours a day sometimes working 12 to 15 days straight. Both of my knees have osteoarthritis in them my left knee was scoped it helped a little bit . Right know I'm having major problems with my right knee , I'm having health insurance problems so I'm unable to go to PT. But my right knee is my problem right now I'm in pain most of the time . Pain reliever dont help and I dont want to get started on narc and become dependent on them . The dr. I'm seeing won't do any kind of surgery on me until I lose weight am I'm of age to do a full knee replacement. So guess I'm screwed.
