    Hi there Steve. Hello to you too and welcome :) I'm glad your replacement hips are doing so well but sorry to hear the knee (knees?) has now joined the party. I have two new hips and two new knees but I had RA from age 15.

    I hope we can be of help and support to you. If you've any questions Living With Arthritis is the place to put them. Or just join in anywhere on any thread. Chit Chat is for non-arthritic stuff. I hope to see you around :)

    Oh bother, so not needed, yes? I have two kinds of arthritis including OA in a number of useful joints and am still waiting for new knees - I've been waiting for three years because I was too young aged 52, so things have deteriorated elsewhere as a result to the point that I'm not sure if I'll bother now. This is what any kind of arthritis does, it spreads but it sounds as though you have been unlucky. I wish you well and please let us know how you get on and what the prognosis is. DD
