Running with bad knees

I just got back from a physical with my doctor and he told me that I should stop running as I have osteoarthritis in my left knee. I'm only 36 years old and I was devastated by the news.

I'm wondering if anyone here has experience running with arthritis in the knees, if they have any suggestions on braces or sleeves that help, etc.

I should mention that I have very flat feet and use orthotics in my running shoes.

I don't want my running days to be over already, but I also don't want to mess my knees up so bad I can't walk by the time i'm 60.
