I have news on my knee. I have sought a second opinion as i wasn't happy with how i was treated at my regular hospital. Saw a specialist from coventry who also does private consultations. Took all the paperwork that i had from my hospital. He went through everything and examined my knee. Looked at me standing up and fiddled with it and made it sore afterwards. He was lovely.
The upshot is that there things that can be done. He wants xrays of my leg from top to bottom and a bone scan. He thinks that a replacement will be possible. Theres a 7 out of 10 that it would work and 3 out of 10 it will be worse. Its a chance we are going to take as i am fed up not being able to get about. He is setting the tests up at coventry and we'll see what happens after that.
My husband is pleased with the result. I don't know how i feel. Its been so long of nobody believing me i can't get my head round the fact that i might be able to walk properly for the first time in three years.
He is putting me on the list for a replacement on the nhs. Don't know how long it will be,but at least something is being done. I don't think my gp will be very happy,but its not his knee that is wrong. I dread going back to see him,but i know i will because as a rule he is a good doctor.
Well my friends thats me done. Hope each and every one of you are al in better spirits and painfree.
