Hi there, I have just joined the site.

I am female, 49 years old and have lived with osteoarthritis in both of knees for 10 years now.

Most days I can cope (if only just) but sometimes find it difficult to keep up with my 2 daughters, (11 and 16) especially when we go girly shopping.

I really miss dancing as I find that too hard now.

I am on anti imflammatory drugs and pain relief but would like to hear from anyone who has had a knee replacement.

    Sorry I cant help with the knee replacement but I would like to say hi and welcome to the forum. There are plenty of people on here who have had various treatments and they are all very friendly.

    Hi and welcome from me too. I have Oa in knees and 2 children so I know how hard it can be at times. Not had knee replacement but there are a few on here who have and will be more than happy to help you. Look forward to seeing you around.
