To answer the question above, sometimes I do. My knees are giving me ‘hell’ today. I had my knee surgery a good few years ago and they were good for a while.
They were good for a couple of years then something went wrong and although I am constantly reassured that it has nothing to do with the prostheses going bad, now every step hurts. So today I was feeling a bit sorry for myself. and decided to look at a few photos of those who really did have something to complain about.
I have chosen a handful from more than a hundred leg shots, and cut out the really nasty ones but you choose if you want to read on.
The first couple are of patients who came for help after they had been operated on at St Elsewhere.
And so I could go on and on, but enough for most to stomach for one day. I come to the end of it feeling considerably less sorry for myself.
