Good morning, I am new to the group.
Please can you help with 2 questions, I have been advised by my GP, that I have arthritis in both knees.
Can you advise me if I can request a referral to a orthopedic team? The Gp, gave me little info, except exercise, and Co codamol?
I am 54, and struggled for around 5 years, although it has become increasingly more painful? (My sister had a full knee replacement yesterday aged 52). I would just like to find out more about the condition and if there are any alternative treatments?
Also I have purchased various knee supports, are they ok, to use all day or will I become dependent on them, or will they make my knees worse? Any advice would be appreciated!!
