    I have moderately severe arthritis in both my knees and was in pain all day, every day before surgery. I’m down 50lbs in 11 weeks and it has made a huge difference in my knee pain and arthritis. I noticed today that I I was able to squat down to pick something up off the floor, which would normally be completely out of the question prior. I can’t imagine how much better I’ll feel once I get to closer to my goal weight! So yes, it makes a difference!

    Knee pain causing mobility issues is one of the major reasons I started researching WLS and getting serious about it's possibility. I'm still pre-op, but I can only imagine how much easier it will be carrying less weight. I'm sure if you have other medical issues that weight loss won't be the ultimate cure, but the way I look at it is this: does my knee hurt even more when I'm carrying heavy groceries? Yes. So, if I weighed less, my leg may hurt less.

    Best of luck!

    What Arabesque said...I’ve had knee replacement surgery before WLS on one knee. Unfortunately, both knees are still trashed That being said, I have severe arthritis in the knees and 13 surgeries on them over the years for various injuries. So...short version..it depends.

    It will depend upon what damage if any you may have to your knees. But certainly reducing the amount of weight you’re carrying will take pressure off them. The balls of my feet used to ache & burn & occasionally my feet would cramp even in flat shoes but now I can dance for hours in heels pain free.
