I am 70 years old and have fairly advanced AS as well as fibromyalgia. My treatments consist of infliximab as well as MoSu ER b.i.d., Lyrica, and breakthrough meds. This regimen keeps me functional. Otherwise I would not be able to get around very well. I now need knee replacements in both knees and would like to know if anyone else with AS/fibro has had this type of surgery and how they did both with the surgery and with recovery, especially regarding pain management. Please help as I am really hesitant to proceed with the surgery no matter how much I need it. Thanks so much!

My father had a complete knee replacement, was on his feet within days and getting n entirely normally after a week. He was 88 when it was done, he is 94 now and still up and at it!

Good luck to you
