Well the time has come, I am having a double knee replacement, my next hurdle is what type of anaesthetic to have, the hospital are keen I should consider epidural, with sedative, I a not keen on this, I would prefer to be asleep, but it has been put to me that recovery is quicker with epidural, anyone any comments. I may be a wuss but I have no wish to Hear Drs cutting away

    I'm glad yaris could reassure you on that one, santa002. I think you'll get more replies if you post this on the Living With Arthritis forum.
