Say Hello

Hello, I’m a 37 year old, who has hypermobility and after having loose joints and dislocations as a child, my right knee finally gave up last year and I tore my ACL and meniscus. I got surgery this year and they realised that I have severe arthritis and need a knee replacement! I’m looking for help and advice as I was told I would have to be at least 50 before being considered. How do I manage that long? also the pain i have now is worse than before the surgery.
