I had a patial knee replacment nearly 3 years ago. They cut into my ligament during the operation. I have had problems with it ever since, we thought there was something wrong with it as I was still in pain but I was told last year it was CRPS. I have seen a pain Dr but he wasn't very helpful!

i take paracetamol, codeine and gabapentin at the min with oromorph when very bad. I'm having to finish work as I work with SEN children and I just can't manage it. Is there anyone suffering this problem and does anyone know if I can get financial support.

    You don' t say which country or county you live in so the financial support part of your question is difficult to answer likewise neglicence claims are treated differently ( I suppose ) in different countries .

    Is ot too late to claim against the Trust where you where operated ? Or I suppose you could try legal "ambulance type " chasers or your insurance company if you have health cover .I don't know how it works in England now but legal cover is an option in France ,so I have claimed on my policy here for my accident ( 2 dogs) fractured leg and CPS
