What I liked
After five years of regular visits to the orthopeadic clinic i was asked were the pain was? and what was that scar ?- referring to an anthropscopy scar received at the hospital four years ago i was then told i might need half a knee replacement when i was told a full knee replacement was needed five years ago. You always see a different doctor and have to go through the same story over and over again as they can't be bothered to read your notes, at my last appointment I was asked how my hip was? when the problem has always been my knee - doesn't give you a tlot of confidence, does it.
What could be improved
knowing what part of me needed surgery would have helped
after five years of having the run around waiting for a knee replacement- ie, your too young, you need to lose weight to be told to come back in a year was a bit much
