    Hospital Again !

    Well it looks like I'm going to be laid up again. After seeing the Consultant earlier this week he has decided to completely remove the knee joint that I had replaced 10 years ago and fit another one. He hopes to get me in some time in March so I will need to get my finger out and get a few jobs knocked off the big list I have. 😱

    Cheers Derek, it's only been 6 months since I had the other one done and that seems to be going ok. This one apparently is a bit more of a complicated procedure and a longer recovery period. I managed to get seen by one of the U.K. Leading specialists for this one so hopefully it will go better this time

    Good luck Vic.
    Hope it goes well for you.
    Keep popping in here, you just need a finger working for this, plus your brain.

    RoboVic! More metal than bone soon

    Hope all goes well.
    I can't decide whether to be a good example, or a horrible warning!

    Cheers Neil, I set enough shop metal detectors off as it is. After all this work my legs will be worth a damn site more than me

    Cheers Peter, Had to wait a while to get to see this Surgeon but within a few minutes of looking at the X-rays he had done he spotted the issues with the old replacement along with a couple of others that I was not aware of. The hospital is a bit of a jaunt to us (120 mile round trip) but I should imagine that's just like nipping to the shop for you folk down under.

    I hope all goes well Vic, it seems bizarre that a replacement knee has to be replaced, I thought a replacement was for life... i
    Kind regards John.

    They normally last 15 years plus John but this one has never been right since it was put in 10 years ago and even further attempts to correct it failed. If you get a chance have a look at the YouTube video on Knee Revision Operation
