Thanks for writing to us.
You can take instaflex till the time you are scheduled for surgery for the symptomatic relief. Instaflex contains glucosamine sulphate and MSM which increases the painless mobility of your joint and helps in formation of the damaged cartilage. Using it will give you some relief from your symptoms. You can use mild pain killers also alongwith.
I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful. Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.
Wishing you good health.
