    Bone on bone pain

    Both my knees are crippled with bone on bone osteoarthritis pain - the most severe.
    I am not a candidate for joint replacement surgery due to complications, which make me a very high risk patient ----- I'm likely to suffer clots, heart attack or a stroke in the OR.
    I'm in constant pain and can only walk VERY short distances. I'm also in a pain MGMT. program under the care of an MD./specialist.
    I live with severe pain most of my waking hours. I also have a very bad/ high pain lower back.
    Any thoughts on pain control other than what I'm doing?
    PT only seems to aggravate the pain. I spend most of my time on my back. I'm considerably overweight.... due to many courses of steroid treatments over the years.
    Thanks for any suggestions you may have.
    Regards.
    Libby Glazer
