Hi everyone, new on here, not new to arthritis, had scoliosis as a child, always just got on as best I can, stopped taking meds as made me either sick or stoned about 6 yrs ago told it was also Scheuermann's disease, Arthritis seems to be affecting lots more joints from Jaw, hips ,elbows, back & I am now 55. last week my knees collapsed and told I need knee replacements. I use Nordic Walking, not massive distances and work as much as possible. Anything I can do to avoid surgery
