hi jitu;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Your father probably has OsteoArthritis .It is age related degeneration of bones & is irreversible so he will have to take treatment & have calcium rich food.Also as he has thyroid problem which I guess is hypothyroid he may take some time to recover as in hypothyroid there is depletion of calcium so he is taking more time to recover.Please follow your doctors medicines & if he does not get any relief the Ortho doctor may advise further management .

hello Jitender

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.Knee pain at your father's age could be praobably of some arthritic origin. Hope of all investigations, he has been investigated well for Gout as well. Because , this is very common about this age.He might be having osteoarthritis could or it could even be a tendinitis. Well that also reminds me that, at this juncture, if he hasnt got any pain relief, need to look for some systemic cause too, like any malignancy so to say... multiple myeloma.So i would suggest, if he had been seen only by an orthopedician all this while, then he might be taken to a rheumatologist or a physician for that matter.Thank you.
