Arthritis is a debilitating disease, which can cause many people to lose mobility. This can be very frustrating. However, surgery for arthritis can be a viable option for keeping you on your feet.
If your pain is so bad that it’s stopping your daily activities or keeps getting progressively worse, it might be time to consider surgery. This is an option that can be very beneficial, but may require you to make changes in your life. You might have to lose weight or quit smoking to achieve all the wonderful things surgery can provide you. If you aren’t prepared to do that, then it’s probably not a good option.
If you decide to go ahead with arthrodesis or arthroplasty, you need to follow all post-operative instructions, including staying off your feet for a period of time while healing occurs. Surgery is never something to enter into lightly. Make sure you know all your options.
