Hi all. I had my left hip replaced 6 months ago due to osthio arthritis. My consultant and discovered I have it in my right hip now and will sometime soon need that replacing. I was also told I have facet joint arthritis in my lower back and sciatica also disc prolapse (involving a few discs.
I have just received a letter of the employment and support people telling me I am capable of work so I will be taken off the allowance. I am so confused because with facet joint arthritis, the pain is unreliable as in it isn't there every day and is unpredictable when it will hurt. How can I work when I have this pain, plus I need physio and have to wait for an appointment with the hospital for an injection in my spine.
Has anyone else experienced this?
