Wasn't expecting another operation.

Posted , 2 users are following.

Feeling down about the fact i need another operation. I have had arthritis since the age of 11, i am now 59. I have had my left knee replaced twice and now need my right knee replaced. I have had physiotherapy and steriod injection which haven't helped. I have 4 months before i see the consultant again and when i need to decide about having my knee done. I am having constant pain and my mobility is getting worse. I will of had 3 knee replacements by the age of 60. I really wish i didn't need this operation but without it my knee will progressily worsen. I have also being refered for physiotherapy for my left knee to strengthen it. I just wish there were more options, doesn't appear to be. Has anybody else had several knee replacements. 

Elizabeth.
