What to do

My doctor told me Monday that I need a new knee! Seems that there is nothing left of the old one, it's bone on bone! But, since I am on so much other stuff I don't feel all the pain. Just the most severe, and then only when my knee locks up. It just does this at the strangest times, like when I am asleep in my bed and I suddenly wake up in pain. Or when I can't get up in the bathroom. So, maybe I will and maybe I won't, it's just that I trust my doctor with my life, so if he does get serious, then I guess I will consider it. I wonder how many people have their knees and hips replaced and go on to a long and happy life with little regret?
