Hi everyone thank you for letting me join. I’ve been diagnosed with stage 4 Osteoarthritis and due knee operation but for the time being I’ve opted for injections. First injection was administered 3wks ago and so far it hasn’t worked which has just left me feeling really down and fed up. For the last 3yrs I’ve suffered from Sciatica and thought it was all connected with the knee pain. So had micro discectomy July of last year and have been great ever since and thought knee pain would eventually go away but sadly not it’s still there. I’m still taking Tramadol use declofenac gel on knee and paracetamol also have been trying Flarin tablets which really work For the pain.
