I've been diagnosed for more than 25 years but am fairly new to the site and totally new to the forum.
I have a couple of questions. !. I'm looking at possibly having both knees replaced. I want to do them both at the same time. I realize it's more initial trauma, but I'm hoping it will be less hazardous for my MS to have them done together. One knee or two, it may cause significant MS problems. I do think one anesthesia and one horrible period of rehab must be better than two. I'd appreciate input from anyone who's had a similar experience.
2. I'm in So. Florida. I've been here for 18 months but haven't even found a good primary physician, let alone a good neuro. I'm a retired nurse and had lived in the same city for my entire life (57+ years) until we moved here. I KNEW who was good there from working with them. Here, I'm totally lost. I've got a primary but she's very average, according to my usual standards. Giving her a 5 (on a scale of 1-10) would be stretching it. If anyone else is living in the area, I'd hugely appreciate any input you can give me. I strongly suspect, according to today's quality of life, that I'm on the verge of a major exacerbation, so I really need help.
Thanks for any help you all can give me on either question.
