Osteoarthritis and class 1

Hi all,

I'm interested to know if you can permanently loose a UK class 1 due to osteoarthritis ( hips / knees )?. Anyone currently managing such a situation?.

I have early OA of the wrist with associated synovitis- my AME is aware and as symptoms and function are controlled well - he has not been unduly concerned.I guess it depends on the severity of the condition - they may think otherwise if you hobble into the doctors office in considerable pain......

I don't know about the Uk but I was able to keep the medical with a very bad case in my hip, it was walking that was the problem, I was OK with anything sitting down. Got a new hip now!

CFI,

Thanks for the info. May I ask, where you at any point in danger of losing your medical if you never had replacement?.
