2nd opinion: There are too many strange doc opinions for osteoarthritis. Get a 2nd, 3rd, 4th and so on opinion. Money is well spent!

Osteoarthritis is usually helped by keeping weight in control, nutritious diet, addition of supplements of glucoseamine, chonroitin and MSM available at health food stores. Take daily for many months.

NSAIDs: Maybe helpful. Also consider supplements like glucosamine/chondroitin. Lastly if not improving consider how platelet therapy or stem cells can be helpful for you. Check out Regenexx.Com
