Hello
I am new to the forum. I have an arthritic knee and need surgery. There are problems, though. I had open heart surgery 5 years ago and then a pacemaker this means I am on warfarin for life! Surgeons are very reluctant to operate as there could be complications. Has anyone out there had this problem, its so frustrating.

    Hi Christian,

    It's me again! Just to remind you that any questions like this are better posted on the Living With Arthritis forum, the top one on the Public Forums page. Lots of people go on to that one and I'd guess there'd be some who take warfarin.

    This forum we're on now is essentially just for saying hello and getting started and not as many people come to it.

    Hope you can get some answers.
