Your symptoms sound patellofemoral in nature - pain with stairs and with bicycling. If your patellofemoral joint looked good on last September's MRI, with no loss of cartilage and the bone under the cartilage surface looked good, then it may be an overuse injury to the extensor mechanism. This condition has been known as patellofemoral syndrome also, and treatment of this condition has evolved to focus on gluteal and hamstrings strengthening. If on the other hand your PF joint looks degenerated (osteoarthritis, OA), then I would opt for platelet-rich plasma (in the joint, ultrasound-guided). The viscosupplementation treatments (what you referred to as lubricant), in my practice anyway (non-operative musculoskeletal), have not been as effective for patellofemoral OA as for OA in the weight bearing areas of the knee joint.
