Busted knee

Hi I’m waiting on realignment surgery on my right knee, left knee is bowed as well, the surgeon did say I have OA in my hips as well, I’m a bricklayer and after a day at work I’m struggling to walk, I take cocodamal for the pain,

    Hi @Bricklayersarms65, welcome to the online community! It's great to have you here.

    I see that you are dealing with knee and hip pain and you're having difficulty walking, and I understand that you find your symptoms worsen after a day of work as a bricklayer.

    Here's some information about managing knee pain, I hope you find it useful:

    Has your employer made any accommodations for your condition? This link has some information about working with arthritis, including your rights, where to get support, and a specific section on physically demanding jobs:

    In the meantime, I encourage you to browse the community and feel free to get involved in any discussion you like. It can be helpful to talk with people who share similar experiences 🙂.

    Best wishes,
