    Let us know how you get on and we will be with you every step of the way

    Hello GrandmaS. I think you posted originally on the 'News' forum and a couple of the Moderators gave some useful links. Have you managed to find it?

    Thanks for the heads-up Stickywicket on post in the wrong forum. I have now moved the thread to Living With Arthritis, leaving a link in place.

    The thread can now be found here:
