Regards & take care.
other long term alternative. Other things may give temporary relief but it cannot reverse the mechanical defect and the resultant damage.
Also the 'fear' of TKR is unfounded. If done with appropriate care it should give good results.
As regard to the cost of surgery, it depends largely on the prosthesis used and the hospital.
Have you tried other ways to solve knee problem like physiotherapy etc. If not give a physio treatment for three months she will be better, walking will improve.
Try to avoid total knee replacement at all cost. Remember osteoarthritis is a medical formula to make you think knee is under stress. It can be reversed. There is no such thing called osteoarthritic disability. Osteoarthritic conditions can be reversed.
If any further assistance is needed mail me or call me.
Remember there is a way out to stop replacement. Be assured.
