Hi all,

Happy to find this platform and hope to be able to find some support and also offer support to others.

I have psoriatic arthritis, I'm on a clinical trial and might have surgery soon in my left foot.

    Hi @Pencilgirl

    I am happy you found us too and am very pleased you are happy to support others it sounds as though you will have plenty of experience to share.

    I see from your post that you have Psoriatic arthritis and might be having surgery soon on your foot. In case it helps I am attaching some information about the subject which you might find useful:

    I think I am not the only person who might find information about your trial interesting if you wanted to share with us?

    Hello @Pencilgirl , welcome to the group. They certainly kept me afloat over the last horrible 12 months.i honestly don’t know what I’d have done without the lovely people on here

    Hi everyone!

    Already feeling welcome here, thank you.

    Clinical trial - receiving Risankizumab - a very positive experience so far and I'm so grateful for the trial! Changed my life.

    Surgery - fixing hammer toe (middle toe on left foot) - seeing the specialist on Friday.
