I have been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in both knees, left thumb and wrist, Spinal stenosis, lower back pain. Had a total knee replacement on my right knee in 2006, there were complications following the surgery, during rehab, could not get the knee to bend, had two manipulations performed on right knee to no avail, after two years it finally got better, could walk on it, oh and after that surgery I came to in ICU, on the ventilator. After all that I put the left knee surgery off. Now ten years later it is very painful to walk., I worry about the house catching fire. Am seriously considering surgery on the left knee.
