I was prompted by another post to read through the NICE guidelines for OA and was interested to see that the advice is that patients should be regularly seen for a review of their OA to monitor it and to discuss the effectiveness of treatment. It also said that if a patient has OA in more than one joint, they should be seen annually.
Whilst I have an annual general MOT, as I'm over 60, I have never had a regular review for OA and I have it in many joints. The MOT is purely with the nurse who checks blood pressure and takes bloods to check kidney and liver function and cholesterol level. OA has never been mentioned. Do others have regular reviews/monitoring for OA?
