Hi,
Have you tried knee pads and shoe inserts? They might not solve your problem, but I am sure they might prolong the inevitable surgery. I have back problems and recently had a knee scope done on my right knee. The inserts that I use is call  Profoot. They relieved pressure from both my back and knees. I feel the difference when I wear other shoes or no shoes. I hope this helps.

Regards

Any luck guys? I too have excruciating pain on kneeling which then results in numbness on the right side of the lower leg just beneath the level of the knee. It is really annoying because everytime you kneel down to get something in a cupboard you get such stabbing pain!! I've tried pain-killers but they don't seem to help that much....
