Subject: Ladies....anyone had new knees?

Hi again, just wondered if any ladies with severe arthritis have had new knees and have you had amazing results.
May need one and would love to hear that they are marvelous!

I haven't had my knee replaced but had both my hips done, which are fantastic. When I was waiting for my first one I went to my friends wedding her mother in law had had her knee done and she said it was really good. Have you managed to see a rheumatologist about your knee yet? They usually keep replacements as a last resort, they tried a steroid injection in my hip first.

Hello 'going strong', thanks for response.
I have had RA for 30years and the knee does do this every few years. I have been told I probably need one earlier this year, but when all is going 'not too bad' I tend not to think about it.
This last 2weeks of hell, have frightened me and am thinking it may be the way to go.
But am hoping for a magic injection on Tuesday.
Regards. X

Emm,I thought that as well as i have had loads of injections into them and thought i would probably need replacements but i was told the xrays were alright, they did show some space between joints, whatever that means. I am hoping the medications will stop the need for a replacement for a while yet. x

Rhona,
I think that means you are not down to bone rubbing against bone. I think that's a good thing!
The injections usually work well for me too, but I don't think it has ever been as painful as this.
Perhaps the length of time I've had to put up with it too has contributed. Take care. X
