Hello all. I'm John, I'm 67 and have osteoarthritis in various parts of my anatomy - much more mildly than many, so no particular grumbles as yet. I've had a bit of surgery and am contemplating more, so went to share experiences on that.

    Hello, it's nice to meet you and I hope you find the forum to be of interest; I'm ten years younger than you but am still the only one in our group of friends with arthritis. I have PsA and OA (the latter was diagnosed in 2011). What surgery have you had so far and what are you considering having done? DD
