I have bone-on-bone in the right knee and almost also in the left knee now. I move as much as I can but have to put my feet up each evening to help relieve some of the pain. The longer I am on my feet, the more my knees hurt and lower legs swell. Dr said he won’t do surgery until I loose at least 100 pounds.
