Hello is there anyone who has had knee replacement in their 70s who can tell.me what care is needed when you come home from the hospital. I am particularly concerned about pain relief as I can only take paracetamol. I am also concerned about managing afterwards as I have arthritis in both knees hip spine from neck to lower back and one hand. We live in a very small house and only upstairs toilet. I was told by a consultant some 6/8 years ago not to have surgery unless really necessary as it is an awful operation and not as easy as hip replacement. I am hoping it will not come to this. I have mild fibromyalgia as well.
