    Richard’s suggestions are terrific. I also posted a discussion with my surgeon (I’ve had three joint replacements) that might be helpful: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/joint-replacement-a-chat-with-surgeon/

    Thanks for writing QTPie. This article from our editorial team looks at knee and hip replacements, with links to additional information: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/surgery/hip-and-knee-surgery/.

    My wife, Kelly Mack (a contributor here), had both knees and hips replaced over twenty years ago and had a knee revision a few years back. Here is her article about the revision: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/a-brand-new-knee/. In addition here is her article on working with a nutritionist afterward: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/help-nutritionist/ and this article from our editorial team offers information on physical and occupational therapy: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/physical-therapy-and-occupational-therapy/.

    Finally, this article from our editorial team looks at questions to ask your doctor when considering surgery: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/surgery/questions-to-ask-your-doctor-before-surgery/.

    Hope this information proves useful and keep us posted on how you are doing. Best, Richard (RheumatoidArthritis.net Team)
