R knee problems: Perhaps it's time to see your orthopedic surgeon to discuss options such as knee replacement (if you are old enough & in sufficiently good health to withstand an operation).

Talk to an ortho doc: That's a lot of trauma to a knee at age 29! in complicated cases like these, your best option is to see one or even several orthopedic/sports med specialists to explore every possible option. Start with the easiest and work your way through treatments if pain persists. A combination of medications, activity modifications, physical therapy, injections, bracing, and possibly further surgery can help.
