Camp Lejeune, North Carolina
 I am married and between us we have four children ages 11-6 ( two boys and two girls!)  I was diagnosed in 2006 with Progressive-Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis and in 2008 with Rheumatoid Arthritis. It does make life rather challenging at times especially with four children, but for the most part I don't let it slow me down. Don't get me wrong I have my down days or weeks even,...

When contemplating about writing an “about me” section that would talk about my diagnoses and the effect that they have had on my life. Every time I start to type, I am not sure what it is that I want to say. I just know that what I have to say has to have a profound effect on those reading the words and having all the same questions that I have had for some many years and even the...

Botched

Kneeville, California
Hi, I'm a 64 yr old male who had a TKR on my right leg this year (2009).  My doctor was referred on the website for the Knee Replacement Device.  My knee got infected 3+ weeks after the surgery, operated on it again, and it's been a downhill ride ever since, incl a bone scan.  I would NOT recommend this procedure to anyone!  Removing an infection in a cemented process...
