"2nd left knee problem"

About: Epsom Hospital

I had a 2nd left knee replacement put in after an Infection set in after key hole work on the 1st left knee replacement. Its been just over 2yrs since the replacement and I am still having problems with the Knee in going up an down inclines with no control at all with the leg and pain when I have been sitting around and getting up from a chair. I have told the Consultant at Epsom all this and they have said I have to be reseen and I have to get my GP to get me refured to be seen. Now the Consultant new I was leaving the UK to move to Ecuador in September 2013 on a fulltime basic after the Op, now being told I have to return back to the UK at a cost to me for Flights and Hotels while they see me. So my review to you on 2 Left Knee Replacements and a 3rd may be need by the needed of this yr 2015 I have been told by an Ecuadorian Knee Doctor and with all this my right side Knee, Hip and Leg is playing up. I am not a happy man on our Epsom and the Consultant have left me the way I am. And when you ask them about this, they will say like they have told me they have done no wrong but they are happy to leave me with this painful problem an I feel they do not care at all. I wait an see what you got to say about all this and if you wish I can put you intuch with this Doctor here in Ecuador.
