Knee Replacement Surgery in MS patients
ellienolan1939 posted:
My husband is 83 years old, has MS and needs a knee replacement. I have not found any information about rehab for knee replacement for someone like him. I think it would be very nearly impossible for him to successfully complete the rehab. He is very weak in his legs. He walks very poorly. His knee causes him a great deal of pain now. Can anyone share any information? Thank you

Hi ellienolan1939,

You may find it helpful to also post your question in our Multiple Sclerosis Community to double your chances of someone having an experience similar to your husband's. The members who post there are active and may have some experience with knee replacement and MS.

Best wishes,
