You actually know the answer 1- you really need to lose weight as this is really putting severe pressure on the knee joints and your knees and feet bear the burden of your body. Try a bit of mild exercise like walking and exchange some of the high-fat foods with more veggies and not more than 2 fruits per day. Your weight-loss might be slow, but worth it over time- especially with a baby you want to play with. Your PCOS is probably linked to insulin resistance and I suggest you see a specialist who may start treatment with metformin if necessary. This may actually help with the weight loss.
2. You are probably going to need an operation at some time- do yourself a favour and just go to an orthopaedic surgeon who specialises in knee surgery for an opinion. You can then make an informed decision as to what is necessary.
Hope this helps!
