Well start slow. Get two knee braces for each leg. Do floor excercises mainly. Riding a stationary bike will take stress off you knees while giving you good cardio. And take a tylenol are aspirin before workout.

I have the same issue too with my knees but I got used to it, it might be because of a condition that is in your feet I have it I do not know what they call it but it affects your lower back and your knees you should consult a doctor

you could try kicking your feet up whenever you get the chance. rest joints always helps. I don't mean putting your feet on a table by the way it should be something that gives your entire legs support.

Start with swimming( no impact that causes jarring) or use a stationary bike then increase the resistance gradually then do quad strenghthening like squats, leg raises and even walk with resistance bands tied above your knees. I had a torn ACL so I ended up with a reconstructive knee surgery and that's what I did before and now I can tolerate jumping jacks and hopefully, I can start running. Take care!
