Brief Answer:
Can Take PRP Shots.

Detailed Answer:
Hi I am Dr Gopal Goel Orthopedic Surgeon.
I have gone through your problem.
It is not clear as to what shots you have taken- steroids or visco supplementation or PRP.
Since you do not want to undergo knee replacement and I do not recommend any long term painkillers , I suggest
1. Regular knee exercises to strengthen your thigh muscles.
2. Cartilage improving drugs like collagen peptides.
3. Shots of PRP / Stem cells in the knee joint.
If these things do not help, then there is only one option- knee replacement.
Thanx for the question. Please feel free to ask any other question.
