Hello all, i'm a newcomer to your forum, hope you dont mind me joining in and asking a few questions.
About my condition.. have osteo for last 15yrs and am 60yrs now, so far have had a wrist fusion and knee replacements. Have osteo in my spine, hips,shoulders wrists,fingers, ankles, you name it, its there lol.
I have a question for you, hoping someone can answer. Never before have i had a limp,but since having my second knee replacement i have ended up with a shorter leg and have had to have a built up shoe. My consultant denies that the Knee replace, was not the cause and was an underlying problem, how come i didnt limp before. Has any one else encountered this problem
Hope you can help
