    Unhappy Have You Had a Elbow Joint Replacement ??

    Hi Everyone

    I am 26 and have been told I may need to have an elbow replacement on my elbow which has been damaged from Rheumatoid Arthritis ( I have had RA since I was 15)

    I had a wrist fusion 2 years ago which was successful but the elbow replacement surgery is slightly worrying me , I worry about having to have surgery every 10-15 years to replace the joint and other things.

    I have talked to the docter and asked him questions but I would like to hear the experiences of people who have actually had the surgery.

    Please share your experiances, the pro's and con's etc' .. I would really appriciate it
