Hello :)

I am in my thirties and have been diagnosed after a stay in hospital, with rare form of osteoarthritis in my knee. I have to have surgery on my other knee in the next few weeks or so.

Would be great to meet other arthritis warriors ;) xx

    You have come to the right place, there are one or two of us about here. I am currently losing my arthritis battle (had psoriatic arthritis for a while and have just learned I also have OA in both knees) so I am not in the best of places for a cheering message but I can assure you that there is a wealth of experience on here with dealing with, coping with and managing this beast in all its guises. Post again on LWA (living with arthritis) forum and I suspect you will get more replies, not everyone hangs around on here! I wish you well. DD
