Hi All,
Just found your forum here and thought I would join in. I had a lumbar fusion with hardware almost almost three years ago. And it did eliminate alot of my back pain. And with meds I can't hardly feel any pain . But now I am having alot of knee pain and the docs are suggesting a knee replacement. I'm only 40 and I am a little concerned about going thru with it. I know this is a back pain forum but has anyone had any experience with this surgery too ?

Thanks Jaws


  • Welcome to Spine-Health.

    Yes, many people here have had additional problems after their spine surgeries. Our Administrator, Ron Dilauro has had both shoulders replaced and a hip replacement most recently. Others have had the same and also knee issues.

    Spine-Health has just started a new site for arthritis - you'll find the exact link in the Announcement section of the site. That might be a good place for you to visit.

    Take care,
  • Thanks I'll check that out.
