My mother had her second knee replaced last year. Now she is more or less unable to walk and is in constant terrible pain in both knees.
She complains that both are stiff and so painful she can't walk or sleep at night.
Living alone is a problem. She has tried all the drugs around, the last being Artrotec. All she gets is no relief and sickness and diarrhea.
What can she do? She seems to get no help from GP's or hospital, and cannot even get to the chemist.
She had bad knees before, now she has none, and pain!
