Thanks for writing to us.
Degenerative changes with presence of loose bodies in the knee is causing the unbearable pain you are having.
You need to have an arthroscopic surgery done for the removal of these bodies and baker,s cysts. Please consult your orthopedician for the same.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
