Hi, back from having bilateral jaw joint replacements. Three weeks out now and wondering if anyone else has had the same procedure. The surgeon said it is almost definitely related to the PsA. It’s very tough going, the pain is pretty awful, as due to other medical problems I can’t take NSAID’s or morphine related drugs. Surviving just on paracetamol and warm heat packs. Managing fluids just though a syringe into my mouth.
If anyone else has had it done I would be interested in knowing how they coped.
Struggling with the back pain which is always made worse by reduced mobility, I keep as active as I can normally which helps my back and joints immensely in the long run but feeling weak and frail at the moment I can just about potter round the house now.
I might sound a bit down and depressed but I’m not, I’m just struggling with pain and weakness and looking forward to feeling better.
Any help appreciated.
