Although I was diagnosed with MS in 2010 I am normally a fairly active person.
That was until I had TKR in February 2016.
It seemed all around me people my age (67) were having knees done and apparently seemed fine afterwards.
Mine is not the case. It's all been a nightmare. My general health has taken a real battering
It's been nearly 7 months and I'm reliant on crutches. The pain wakes me in the night. It's all far worse than how I was before the op. I'm practically crippled now.
I am aware that any kind of trauma to the body could spark a MS flare-up and I'm just hoping this is not the case.
However, it does make me think that the Anaesthetist
didn't even know I had MS even though I told the consultant.
Surely there should be more research done on ops for MS sufferers
