in-operable because of severe arthritis
I don't really understand what your doctor is saying - when you have a joint replacement done, it does just that - replaces the damaged joint, so therefore gets rid of the arthritis. I've had a shoulder replacement done due to severe arthritis and although I am having some trouble with that shoulder again, it is NOT due to the arthritis.
I also can sympathisize with anyone who has arthritis - or any chronic pain condition for that matter - I have several pain issues and honestly cannot remember what a day (or even an hour) without pain feels like.
I'm 47, so anyone that thinks that arthritis is strictly an "old person" disease, they are sadly mistaken!! I've had the documented arthritis for many, many years already. As I said, i've already had one shoulder replaced and have been told I need to have both of my knees, my right hip and both of my ankles done soon.
If I were you, I'd consider getting a second surgical opinion about the replacement.
God Bless you also :) Read More At : ...
