Thanks Ducky :) Yes, he likes his supplements and does take fish oil (when he remembers). It's prescription meds and doctors that he avoids like the plague! I think he's afraid they're going to tell him that he needs his knees replaced but I honestly doubt it's that bad yet. He does a lot of up and down motion at work (he's a construction painter at Ford) and some days he says his knees just kill him. Another question for ya's.......has anyone tried the Blue Stuff yet and if so, does it help with knees? My gma who has bad bad OA uses something similiar, Blue Emu, and swears by the stuff but her OA is in her hips and back. But it's hard gauging from her reactions to things because she never complains and never says anything hurts even though I know when she's in pain. Just a FYI, he won't use any other sort of cream because of the smell and The Blue Stuff has no odor but it's way expensive. I will gladly get it for him though if it will help ease his pain.
