Does anyone out there have fibromyalgia and had knee replacements?

Re: tkr with fibromyalgia

I have fibro too and haven't had knee replacements yet. I have had other surgeries (carpal tunnel release on both hands and a total hysterectomy) and it hasn't seemed to make that pain worse or last longer.

I am going to a osteo for a probable meniscus tear. And in May need extensive surgery on my foot. Fearing the foot op and hoping fibro doesn't make recovery worse.

I'll be following your progress with great interest! **** luck.

Re: tkr with fibromyalgia

Hi, I already had both knees done in 2005, and I still have a lot of pain with them, the reason I asked about fibro with kr. was that I read about a year ago that people that have that surgery were not good candidates for this. I wish I knew that before the surgeries.
