hi every one have just found this site dont know how but I did am 21 and have been riddled with this arthritis for years and it is getting worse and worse I have fixed flexion deformity left arm OA right knee goose neck deformity left hand.
I take no meds as i can not be arsed with all the blood tests sitting in hospital for hours.
My doctor wants me to have total knee replacement, but I have said no cos the risks are to great.
it is good to see this site as i can come on here and moan as none of me mates understand and expect that I can walk for miles going from bar to bar on friday nite.
has any one had a knee op and was it proper painful afterwards, how long before you could walk
