Hi Peeps
 
My rheumy has sent me to a surgeon to see if I qualify for the Oxford Partial Knee Replacement surgery.  Everything I have read on the net so far, say very clearly, that RA sufferers are NOT good candidates.
 
Has anyone here every had this procedure, or know someone who has?
 
Thanks in advance

Thanks Jo. I posted it here because of my having RA. I know that it is very good for osteo and other forms of arthritis. I will give it a try and see what I find out.

Thanks again Jo, I really appreciate your time. :)
