Bone Scan

I received a verbal response for the results of a bone scan I had done last Thursday. It showed "significant degenerative osteoarthritis" in both knees. Will not actually see the doctor until next week. What can I expect next?
Constant pain, cannot stand, sit, lay down without discomfort. 2 Vicodins allow me to sleep about 6 hours each night, but I wake up in a fog and do not take anything during the day. Only 52, I hate the thought of replacement, but am also desperate to find relief

You could try what I do. I have mild osteoarthritis in my knees. About 2 years ago I started to limp when I walked, but I did have the constant pain you have. I am interested in herbs. I read a book named Dr. Duke's Essential Herbs, written by Dr. James Duke, the author of The Green Pharmacy. He recommends Turmeric standardized to 95% Curcumin and that you take enoough capsules spread over the day to get at least 1100 milligrams of Curcumin. I've been doing that for over 2 years and have not limped at all in that time. Turmeric is healthy in many ways, unlike the NSAIDS normally taken for arthritis.
