Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, there is the fundamental problem---knee and orthopedic issues which would require new surgery and that is a big problem and the management of the pain.

There's rather a lot of options for pain. One would be more drugs, but another would actually be less drugs. Besides getting used to them, narcotics also change the perception of pain. Every system in the body re calibrates.

So, if you are out in the sun, you temporarily lose light sensitivity. With a lot of opiates, pain changes and blocking these systems with Suboxone would have a change in pain sensation and also be a safe way to take a narcotic.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
