So why biologics if joint disease still persists?
I'm 67... I was diagnosed at 53 with seronegative RA... By then, I already had 1 knee replacement... Now I can say I have had 9 including the knuckles in both hands.
Joint damage while on biologics
I have been on many of the biologics, and the most recent, Xeljanz and Actemra, helped tremendously with the symptoms, so I was hopeful that my joint replacement days were over.. Low and behold, I just learned that in 4 years, my other knee has deteriorated and will eventually need to be replaced. So why continue on these toxic medications if they do nothing to halt this deterioration? I am at a crossroads...
Spring is officially here! How are you feeling about the weather change?
