Not necessarily related to GCA, although it could be, I am contemplating the possibility of having an op on my arthritic knee - caused by a mis-spent youth of playing hockey and the inevitable aging process. It's been a bit dodgy for years, but on high doses of Pred the pain virtually disappeared, but now it's back with avengance, and how.
I've had a few injections, but my latest holiday in Spain a couple of weeks ago was a bit of a nightmare, so GP has said we'll evaluate the situation in another three months.
I know many of you have been through this op, including polkadotcom, so any advice from her, or anyone else, would be much appreciated, on op itself and particularly recovery etc. I live on my own (not good, daughter in NZ so she can't just pop round), in a bungalow (good, no stairs), am very impatient (also not good).
