    Hello @Summer3838 and welcome to the community. We are a friendly and supportive group and I hope that you find that as well.

    I understand that you have osteoarthritis in your shoulders and knees and bakers cysts behind both knees. I do hope that the cortisone injections help. Have a look at the following as well, there may be something to help you.

    Please do keep posting and let us know how you are getting on and I am sure that others will connect with you to share their thoughts and experiences as well.

    With very best wishes

    Hi @Summer3838 I also have osteoarthritis in both knees and other areas of the body. I was previously a porter in a busy hospital, but due to my arthritis I was redeployed to an office job. I don't know what your job is but would redeployment be an option for you? There are things which can help you with work, such as 'access to work'. Occupational health. Reasonable adjustments to your duties. Have you told your employer of your disabilities?
