henoch schoelin purpura long term effects

         I developed hsp 40 years ago after contracting strep throat. I developed a bowel obstruction and nearly died- I was six at the time. I again contracted it the nexy year. My question is this. At age 44 after enduring about 10 years of severe arthritis in my knees,  I finally had bilateral knee replacements. What are the odds my knee replacements were due to hsp. I was not an athlete in school, and was also never overweight.

not a thyroid question -- I don't know much about HSP.  Consider Rheumatology consult.
