Hi everyone - I'm new to all of this. Waiting for about 6 years for a bilateral hip and knee replacement and it's not looking good! Hoping that this will bring some distraction and advice on how to cope in these strange times when even my GP won't see me face to face. Keep well and safe!

    Hi @Countrywoman

    Welcome to the forum,glad you have found us.

    That's a long time to wait for replacements for hips and knees,but in this current climate it is hard to know when replacements will be implemented.

    You have come to the right forum to take your mind off the waiting time,everyone on this forum is friendly and will give you encouragement with stories similar to yours.

    The most popular forums are Living with Arthritis and Chit Chat,Vals Café.Take a look round them.

    It might be a good idea however to contact your Surgery just to let them know how long you have been waiting

    Please let us know how you get on
