hello all, I probably should be on the Health Anxiety forum as this is not an eminent issue but of course ventured over here because I have fears around knee replacement surgery. I currently have arthritis in my knee and I have had it since I was 27. I will likely need knee replacement in the next 10 to 15 years and I am terrified of getting a blood clot during surgery and it’s traveling to my heart and I die. I have read that is one of the symptoms or risk and have known a person this happened to so now I am terrified. I know I will have to have the surgery or else suffer but I am scared. No this this is not an eminent issue but being the anxious person I am I immediately feel the fear of it. I wonder how you guys overcame this fear. Also do any of you have experience with stem cells and are they effective in helping with arthritis?
