I have severe osteoarthritis in both knees. I have had it for the last 10 years. I have recently been referred to an orthopaedic, and I have to choose a hospital in London. My weight is in the obese category because i have had limited mobility for the last couple of years and could not lose weight.
I am really worried about the operation because i have heard horrible stories about it going wrong for people. But I have no choice now because I cannot walk.
I was wondering
- if anyone in my weight category had any success, and how long the recovery took?
- Are there any NHS doctors or hospitals you recommend?
- Is there any thing i should do leading up to the operation?
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
