Went to hospital to see my surgeon for my Last Check up for my Hip replacement that I had 4 months ago. I have been told that I need a Knee Replacement as I have severely worn knee, very swollen and a bakers cyst on the back of knee which is painful. BUT I was informed that I will have to wait at least a year to have surgery on my knee in case of getting an infection that would pass to the hip!!! I was told that if my hip went well I would have the knee replaced.... never at any time was I told that I would have to wait a year!!! Has anyone one else had this happen? I asked if I could have Ostinil Plus Injection or Cortisone, just to get me through until I can have surgery. I was told that that was not possible as it was too soon after surgery!!! I live in Uk and my surgery was done on the NHS.... would really appreciate it if anyone has been told this thanks! I must add that he looked at my knee scan and xray and said that my knee is very bad!
