Hi I have severe osteo arthritis in both knees and despite not having lost as much weight as the surgeons would like, they are going to replace both knees (hurrah - I can only walk about 200 metres and am in pretty constant pain). I really want them to do both in one operation. They've said no, partly because I can't take General Anaesthetic and it will have to be done under an epidural which they say they can't make effective for long enough. I'm asking them to re-think. Anyone have any knowledge/experience on this topic? Thanks, Ruth
