Rheumatoid arthritis causes pain to many seniors and elderly, and for some, it can affect mobility of the individual due to the pain in arthritic hip or knee.  According to WebMD, when other treatments have failed to gain results in relieving pain,  hip/knee replacement surgery replaces the painful arthritic joint with an artificial joint.  So what should one expect for a rheumatoid arthritis surgery?  To reduce the risk of infection, doctors may ask you to stop some medications due to the immune suppression effect, add blood thinning drugs like aspirin a week or so before the surgery, as well as give blood in advance just in case it is needed during the surgery.  To further lower risk of infection or other complications, eating a healthy diet as well as exercise can help improve the chances after a surgery.  These are just some common recommendations that you often hear from a doctor before hip/knee replacement surgery, a more customized set of instructions may be there for you or your loved one when you are preparing for a similar procedure.
