You really need to go to an Orthopedic Surgeon to find out what is going on with your knee. A Rhumatologist could give you great advice for arthritis or any other itis. I would see the Ortho Surgeon first. Best wishes that you get the help you need.

Hip and knee replacements have a good success track record so your mother should do just fine. Some people only have a knee or hip replaced, and then they do not have any more problems. Maybe your mom will have the good fortune to be one of those.
