    Hello Wendy. I also have OA in my wrists, thumbs, both knees and my back so can really sympathise. My right knee needs replacing but I can't have the surgery as my wrist consultant says I would be unable to manage the walking aids needed post-op, nor could I do the walking needed to rehabilitate knee. Guess you maybe in the same position? Have you had any surgery on your wrists? I've had 3 operations but unfortunately not with the result my Consultant was hoping for.. Hope you are managing to cope as well as possible, but I find it very difficult at times, and I am sure you do too? Beryl
