"Replacement Knee Surgery"

About: University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust

I had a knee replacement in January 2015 after being on the waiting list for 4 months and the service was excellent.

However I have been on crutches since October 2015 and on the waiting list for another replacement knee surgery on my other knee since January 2016 and am supposed to be classed as urgent but still do not have a date for the proposed operation and it is now mid May 2016.

Very disappointed.
