Have pain in knee. Did MRI, x-ray, acupuncture, ultrasound, massage, arthroscopic surgery. Pain has worsened

I have had pain in right knee for a year and a half. Finally got to see an orthopedic surgeon, had several x-rays and two MRI's with no problem seen. Went through 16 physical therapy sessions including acupuncture, ultrasound, massage, and other treatments to no avail. Finally, two months ago I had arthroscopic surgery... no bone fragments, no arthritis, nothing found to cause the constant 24/7 pain. Now the pain has become worse! I am 73 years old and am healthy otherwise. Want to get back to my life! Any suggestions. Thanks for your time, Joan

As your all reports are normal then it seems that you might have osteoporotic changes in bones giving rise to this problem.
Take high dose of calcium and vitamin A and D.
Take high protein diet.
Keep slow walking exercise.
Ok and take care.
