Hi everyone

I have just joined and thought I should briefly introduce myself!
My name is Helen, I am 25 and have had Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis since the age of 3. I finished Uni last year and am currently recovering from an Ankle Arthroscopy.

    Hi Helen, it's nice to meet you. I hope the ankle arthroscopy went well and that the recovery is going smoothly. One of our other younger memeber has just put a post about this op on the LWA forum - you may well be able to answer her better than me as I have ony had a knee one! I wish you well. DD

    Hi Helen,

    A big welcome to the forum, you will find that everyone is very kind and helpful, you can have a laugh as well at Vals cafe, just general talking, if you are fed up you can post a really good moan and get help. You've found the right place to be. Keep us informed of your progress
