I talked to Dr. Haynes about a lingering pain in both knees, but especially the right knee. I fully expected him to recommend knee replacement. After reviewing my x-rays and talking to him, he thought a non-invasive approach would be in order, to start with. I agreed. He then prescribed an ointment called Pennsaid. He said to use this for a month and come back to discuss the results.
I came back in today and told him that the pain has subsided. I use it once a day on my knees and the pain goes away. It comes back in a day or so and then I rub it in again. I’m using it daily now and both knees feel great.
