Hi have been reading previous discussions which have been very interesting. I have rheumatoid arthritis and am registered disabled now as have only recently been diagnosed, once Drs eventually listened to me properly. I use 2x crutches and a scooter to get around. Exercise is very difficult and keeping weight off, even more difficult.
I have been referred for knee surgery but have been given scare tactics by anaesthetist, so I was wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences and managed to get operation done despite being overweight. Any suggestions (other than bariatric surgery as suggested by anaesthetist after telling me that I could die on the surgeons table!) greatfully received.
Good to hear so many positive recovery stories from those post op! Keep going.
