My 19 year old daughter has just been told that she may have mild arthritis in her left knee. She has had pain in the joint for a while, sometimes quite bad so went to the doctor last week who sent her for an x-ray. she had a call within 2 days telling her to see her doctor and was sent a physio appointment. She saw the physio today who thinks it is arthritis and has referred her to a specialist physio.
She's a sensible girl, and is dealing with things well, but as her mother i am worried about the long term implications for her.
I know it's early days, but i would really like to have a clear idea of what she might have to deal with in the future.
