Hey WriterMum I am another Crohnie who has Osteoarthritis. I think mine was caused by using steroids alot thru my many years with Crohns. I use Percoset 1/2 tab 3 times a day to keep my pain in check. I actually am meeting with a Orthopedic Surgeon the end of this month, to discuss a total knee replacement. I actually need both done, but will be doing them one at a time.
