Subject: new to the forum hand joint replacement

Hello new to the forum but not to arthritis!
had seronegative diagnosis several years ago following pregnancy. Although I have sometimes had remission for a couple of years ...this time I have had it about 7 years without a break! rheumatologist considering PA now. I am in line for hand surgery least 3 larger knuckles to be replaced...anyone got any advice..currently take sulfasalasine and diclofenac..with a view to changing to methotrexate when next seen.
