So I went to the orthopedic today. He strongly leaning towards surgery. On both knees. He wants to do a cat scan on my knees first. However he doesn't think the result will rule out the need for surgery. He feels it will be the only to relieve the pain. However he noted that it is not a permanent solution.
Anyway. I developed a little rash on my legs. I deduced that the pillow case for my body pillow is the culprit. It's red. Me and red dye don't mix well. I figure about 4 or ten washes and I should be able to use it again.
