I just had my hip replaced last December. Now my hands are the problem. I am told I have arthritis in my thumb base on my right/dominate hand. It is very painful. I am scheduled for an EMG because my fingers are also going numb so carpal tunnel has to be ruled out. On my other hand, I have a volar ganglion cyst that the Dr wants to remove. Again, they are checking the carpal tunnel to avoid unnecessary surgeries. I tell my friends I'm healthy, just falling apart. It started with my knee, not replaced but 'scoped, then THR and now my thumb. Ugh.

Sorry you have new issues. But the good news is that they can be dealt with. We live in a wonderful time where arthritis problems are not something a person has to just live with. You are on your way to true bionic status!
