"knee replacement"

About: Spire Wellesley Hospital

on dec 8th 2015 went in to have a knee replacement .still cannot walk 20th March 2015! After operation in following weeks went back several times to say something was wrong with my knee no one took any notice just had to ride the pain even physio said nothing was wrong with the knee. After a month of being in great pain I insisted in seeing the surgeon who performed operation. They said that the tendons were torn and I needed a emergency op to repair them .why was this not found in the weeks before when I came to the hospital many times. After care was very bad. No follow up physio appointments were made by wellsley. Only what I got by contacting my own doctor.is the poor quality of care because I was a nhs patient ?
