    Right Knee problems

    I have had severe issues with my knee since 2008. I had surgery on it in 2008 and again 2012. After the surgery in 2008, I have had several shots in my knee since 2008. Also since Jan 2012- I have had a shot in my knee, had physical therapy before my surgery. Also had physical therapy twice since my surgery and also shots in my knee since the surgery.

    My doctor does not seem to want to anything for me. I feel it is time for a knee replacement, but they say no since I am only 43 yrs old. I would like it done, as I am in constant pain and I am unable to do anything.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do?

    You should see another doctor that is willing to help you. There is new technology in joint replacements and some are supposed to last 30 years, Not all doctors believe you have to wait until some magic age to have a replacement. It's a quality of life issue.
