Sounds like you are far beyond the point when you should have new knees. If you have insurance, now would be a good time!

In college I was in a car wreck that shattered both kneecaps. Between osteoarthritis, lupus, high mileage and bad genetics the joints slowly but surely deteriorated.

I have had multiple series of the Suparts injections (hyaluronic acid)and then to the steroid injections as the meniscuses tore and were removed or worn away and my legs started bowing.

Bone on bone is no way to go through life, son.

The steroid injections are making the bone deteriorate even as they make the joint feel better for a short time.

About now would be a wonderful time for brand new knees! Believe me, after about 2 months of physical therapy you will wonder why you didn't get it done sooner.
