Knee pain, no cartlidge in knee. Needs stronger medicine, not interested in surgery.

have horrible knee pain. Been on Loritab 10/325 for over fifteen yrs. Ortho surgeons say that I would need knee surgery once pain med doesn't work anymore as I had no cartlidge in either knee. Now, I have gotten along fine with the Loritab but need to go to something stronger. I mean it's been along time and I have not even asked for something stronger because of all the addiction problems but I am over sixty and really dont want the surgery. I need to find someone who will prescribe dilaudid, demerol or something sotronger. I have not abused the drug as it has been written and am not doctor shopping. I just don't know where to go to get a prescription for something stronger. Been on the percocet. It seems to be the same as the Loritab. Can you offer a suggestion? i am in Las Vegas

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
Knee problem, is very very common all over the globe, first thing you need to do is do not bend your knee joint (abduction) more than 90 degree, acute abduction causes very intense pain, intra articular corticosteroids may help you, this should be administered with experience orthopedic surgeon, have nice day.
