I have moderate osteoarthritis in my right hip and mild osteoarthritis in both knees. Of course, the damage that's been done has been done, but I have MUCH less pain now that I've taken off 200 lbs. I used to get cortisone shots regularly and took naproxen like it was candy. I haven't had an injection in probably three years, and I don't take anything for the pain anymore. When I do get it, it's mild and very tolerable.

I have arthritis in my left knee from a bad accident I was in about ten years ago. It's been impossible to walk around and move, but now that I've lost some weight, I'm not in pain nearly as often. I've only just started losing the weight, but I'm definitely seeing an improvement already.

I'm sure at some point, I'll still need to correct it surgically, but I feel like this is extending my knee's life a bunch and that makes it extra worthwhile to me.

Thankyou..that is good to hear for you..and for my future.I have had to get the knee redone twice..a bad surgeon.I now have big rods in one leg..so thus the weight loss.

Was the initial week really tough..and have tou had any issues with the surgery?

Thankyou

On reflection..please make sure you get a good knee surgeon...double check the person.A wrong surgery can be a real myck up in your life.Good on you though..you sound as if you are doing well C

The first week was actually the *easiest* week for me, but I had a complication with my gallbladder going out on me within my second week (I had it removed a month after my sleeve).

Walking was already getting easier from the pre-surgery diet because I lost about 13lbs before I even had surgery, and you need to be able to walk around as much as possible right afterwards to get that gas out.

And I will find a good doctor, don't worry. ❤️

      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
