    hello to everyone I really hope to make some nice friends who know what I'm going through
    along with severe OA that is now in most joints I also have spondelothesis a back problem and also SMA spinal muscular atrophy numbness and weakness in my arm leg and neck oh and a few other annoying problems like type 2 diabetes under active thyroid etc etc
    but I'm a happy person who my consultants think take my unhappy results with a shrug and say ah well, when in reality I'm thinking OMG
    I'm feeling rather down right now as i am going in for a hysterectomy on 22nd Oct and then a wrist op soon after probably a replacment joint, also been told my 16 x rays showed OA in my knees ankles elbows and hips and I will be needing knee and hip ops along with my wrist and toe joints , so now OA is in all my joints,
    But hey I've got you guys to chat to now , so a big hello !!! :D
