Glad to hear it's over for you Erin! And, I hope, successful. I must tell you, the entire process sounds incredibly mind numbing--I'm not sure I could handle it. We all do what we have to, though. Hope you recover quickly and the injections start doing their thing. You have AS? On top of RA? On top of CD? I'm sure you told me that, but that's an awful lot going on. Go have a few drinks.
I don't know how you do it, but I'm glad it's over Erin! May they last longer than 2 months too!
Do the steroid shots make you jittery and awake like the pills and iv do? I hope not!
Here's to a good night of movies and a great night's sleep of healing!
Erin, sorry your knees are still acting up. I truly hope they start feeling better soon. My knees don't bother me on a routine basis, but the few times they have flared with the rest of my body, they bothered me immensely. I'm sure your knees feel the same X 100.
I didn't realize there was an age requirement for joint replacements? Why is that? If a 25 year old has a bad knee, why won't MDs consider giving her/him a replacement? Do the replacements wear out or something? Is there a major risk of becoming permanently disabled? Just curious.
