Good afternoon and Happy New year.

My name is Adam and I'm 60. Found this forum and wondered if anyone can assist?

I have OA in my ankles, severe in left, mild to moderate in right and severe in right knee. I had an arthroscopy in right knee 2 months ago which has exacerbated the OA. How do people deal with the constant pain? Currently using otc ibuprofen. Doing leg exercises too.
