Well, knee replacement is on the backburner. He did see one of the best ortho docs in our area. Bob wanted to avoid surgery so he got cortisone in both knees and he says they feel quite a bit better. The doctor felt, because of his muscles and for how long he has had limited range of motion, that surgery would probably not solve the stiffness 100% If it was pain that he wanted relief from, the cortisone should help. If that doesn't there is another type of injection that is more of a gel or lubricant that can be tried. I really, really thought the doctor would want to do a replacement. It still may be in his future. We will see how he does with the injections. The doctor also said he could try CBD ointment. I have a friend using CBD ointment on her shoulder as she has had multiple dislocations and her shoulder now aches frequently. She says it helps. We might go to a marijuana store and try it!
