I have just joined, I am Gabriella, every one calls me Gabby.
I am 49 years old, work part time as a receptionist and was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in both knees.
I joined to find out about my condition and to talk to people that do understand what I am going through.
Feeling very low today as yesterday was told at pre-admission check up that a directive was issused 6 weeks ago that people with an B.M.I of over 35 can not have knee surgery, I have a torn cartildge and cyst and HAVE to lose 3 stone or try to find another hospital that will operate. No one will tell me where this directive has come from and I have not heard anything on the news about it, so wondered does anyone know if this can be done. becasue where does it stop.
Thanks for reading sorry to go on but very upset about this.
