Hi I'm new to all of this and I'm hoping to be able to chat with like minded people on here. I'm 56 and was diagnosed with severe osteoarthritis in my right hip back in October last year. I had a bad flare up at Christmas, which seems to be still ongoing. I've had to give up my job as an office cleaner, due to the problems I'm having walking and bending. Feeling quite low at times due to all of this.
