Welcome to the team Christina! I am 58 - kinda found out I had arthritis when I hit menopause. The disease progressed to the stage that I have just recently had a total hip replacement (feb. 25th). I am recovering fairly quickly I think due to my young age and because i worked hard at getting my strength up prior to surgery. Remember you are not alone. We are here to help in any way we can. Keep moving too so that you don't stiffen up very much.
Hi, I'm Christina. I'm Dutch, living in Holland, 48 years old. I got a diagnosis of arthritis the day before yesterday. It's in my right hip. I'm feeling pretty overwhelmd right now, because of other issues and because of the way the doctor 'handed' me this information.
I hope to find support, information and insights in this team.
