Just joined . Had operation 10 weeks ago after feeling very fed up with severe pain day and night. Always very active and lively and was so happy to go in for a knee operation for pain relief. Was told after it my knee is not in a very good way and more surgery will be needed. But for now going back to work soon hoping so much that I can cope and pain won't return. But have decided to keep positive and any tips will be appreciated

    Hello and welcome! Your experience sounds a little like mine - I had an arthroscopy (which did at least stop the knee from catching so much) and was told that my knee is pretty rubbish and would need further surgery. Don't expect anything too soon but do make sure that you speak to GP about getting a good medication routine if it starts playing up at work.

    Is it osteoarthritis or one of the inflammatory ones? I've got OA in both knees and it's taking a bit of getting used to (using the lifts etc) but still managing to work

    Best of luck
    :-)
