Hi my first message

I have had a hip replacement in January which has worked really well and am now awaiting both knees to be replaced due to arthritis and wear and tear!
I waited two and
A half years for my hip and
Am shuddering the thought of waiting that long or longer for
My knees

    Hi @All ,

    A warm welcome to the online community! So glad to hear that your hip replacement has worked well - I'm sure a lot of members who are about to undergo the same op will be pleased to hear that.

    Waiting can be the worst part of the process, so I hope you don't have to wait too long for your knee replacements. You might like to look through the Versus Arthritis website - there are some useful articles on how to manage pain, particularly knee pain. Here's a link to one of the pages that you might find useful:

    Best wishes to you - do have a look through the forum and join in any discussion that interests you.
