  1. I’m so very happy for you! I can’t even begin to imagine how all of the pain has impacted you quality of life. This surgery really is going to be life changing for you. I’m glad you started this blog to keep everyone posted.

    • Thanks Lacy. It definitely is going to be life changing. I feel that this is going to get me back to the person that I used to be. It’s going to be a difficult rehab but I am going into it with a positive attitude and I know that all the hard work will be worth it in the end.

  2. Hi there… I’m 29 and am terrified of my future with PA … I’ve also had it for a long time and although I’ve been lucky to have plenty of lengthy remissions… they are becoming fewer and further between… and well.. my career is in shambles and I am starting over with brand new meds and doing a lot of praying and hoping… I luckily don’t have any drug intolerances besides not enjoying the hairloss and puffy face… but I am likely going to need knee replacements one day… Please keep blogging. Seeing you speak so bravely about such a big event…well I’m impressed to say the least. Keep your chin up! I’ll be rooting for you!

    • Hey Anna, thanks for the kind words and for sharing a bit of your story with me. I hope that my process through this will give you some insight and strength for whenever the time to get yours replaced comes. Don’t hesitate to ask questions or just leave a message to let me know how you are doing. I have started to read your blog and you too have come across s brave, your story about flying home was a strong one, but many people can learn from your story. Keep going strong and remember that you are not alone in this battle.
