Likewise for my Lower Limbs- but No One Updated my other joints - Right Rotator cuff repaired- Left one on List right after my Ganglion Cyst removal on this coming Tuesday- it Hurts and Worse its location is making my Left Thumb go Numb- this is the " GOOD" thumb- the Right one post- joint removal and rebuild, will remain 85% efficient. I MAY NEVER PINCH PEOPLE AGAIN - not that I go out of my way to do it now- but Fine Motor Skills are terrible to lose!

You sound like me. No cyst though. My Dad has them operated on, their no joke. Prayers for your surgery

I take turmeric and it truly works! I have horrible arthritis in my hands and knees. Do yourself a favor and try it. Key is that it must also contain bioperine (black pepper) in order to absorb it.

I have been using it for years now.

I will have to try. I have two kinds in the cabinet haven't tried yet.

Just be sure that they contain bioperine. I have tried without and did not work for me.

Also, I have had two drs tell me that I could take Celebrex if need be.

I bought some "Golden Milk Powder" on Amazon. I contains the Tumeric, black pepper and other spices. Mix with some milk and heat, it is quit delicious!

I had that surgery in January

I suspect like you I may end up getting my knees done as well. Arthritis is awful! I also have had three spine surgeries. So it is in my spine too ugh!

I use Diclofenac Topical gel on my small joints (ankles, wrists, fingers, occasionally around my knees). It is a TOPICAL NSAID, and my surgeon said it is fine. I also take several regular Tylenol a day. That's about as good as it gets. =/ The Diclofenac is very helpful, though.

I don’t have arthritis myself, but know several people who have found significant relief from CBD, both orally and topically.

It is legal in all 50 states. Even national chains like CVS now carry CBD products

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
