Husband facing TKR in November and I have moderate osteoarthritis in hips, spine, wrist and ankle. Hoping to learn from others experiences and to understand more about managing our conditions. Scary time ahead for my OH. Thanks for letting me join.

    Hello @Donda and welcome to the community. We are a friendly and supportive group and I hope that you will find that as well.

    I understand that your husband is having a knee replacement in November and that you have osteoarthritis in some of your joints. Also I see that you are looking for support and other people's experience. You are in the right place as on this community we have a lot of people with different experiences willing to share. Also our website is a good place to have a look at as it contains a lot of useful information about arthritis, treatments as well as hints and tips. To help I've put a couple of links in below which may be of use.

    With very best wishes

    Thank you. I’ve just posted under Living with Arthritis category as I am hoping to hear from others who have undergone an un-cemented TKR and to learn from their experiences.

    Most grateful Peter for the links. I will read up on the TKR info.
