I had a knee replacement in 2010, I had previously had a lot of knee problems and used crutches for short distance and a wheelchair whilst out.
Since the knee replacement I have been in pain constantly, the knee joint clonks and it causes severe pain. I have asked for an amputation, not to help me walk but to help me live without this clonk that has ruined my life.
Unfortunately I have been refused, I'm not taken seriously and I'm left to basically suffer.
Its great that these people fight to save limbs but sometimes you can't, its disgusting how I'm left like this and yet a vet wouldn't leave an animal to suffer like this.
