    Gaining weight is probably a big cause of the pain. Our joints do not like to tolerate extra weight when they already hurt. I have this problem too.

    I had to Google this to know exactly what it is. Age seems to determine at lot of the success with the surgery. The younger a person is the more successful the surgery.

    Good Luck.
