In brief: Let me explain

I see you are 32 years having osteoporosis on the knee reflect to me you are not using your knee properly? Why you cartilage is gone must be a reason for that? Ask the doctor? As far the knee replacement unless you have sever arthritis i would not recommended it.

In brief: Osteoarthritis

You mean osteoarthritis.
A knee replacement is just one treatment option for arthritis of the knee. Other options include pt, oral medications, injections (steroids or hyaluronic acid). Make sure that you are using proper shoes and weight loss is the best treatment to prevent surgical interventions.
