Was wondering if it's helped? How is it functioning? Is walking and everyday activities more or less difficult ? I've had injections but now they're not helping any longer. Rheumy says its fusing itself at this point but at the wrong angle.
My corneal specialist says it’s my next option to consider for my severe sicca symptoms from Sjogrens.
Anyone try this?
Did it work well?

I have uterine fibroids and my dr wants me to get a hysterectomy but I’m afraid and don’t know what to do. Any thoughts?

I have added several people to my team, but only see things from one or two people in my team feed. Is there something else I need to do?

I have multiple disease processes that have led to this point in my life, and I am at a stage where I need a wheelchair, and I’m having difficulty accepting it. Does anyone have any advice/experience with becoming a wheelchair user, and how you were able to accept it and be positive?
