for some of us our lives have been changed forever. we should be able to sue just for the change that affects our daily living, the medical ethics books say we can sue but we can't find a lawyer willing to take the cases.
anyway its been about 3 years since my removal and my leg has just about had it. were you more active and then woke up the next day with leg pain? i think my pain is in the muscle and bone and i just wear it out. i feel like i need two knee replacements.
my joints didn't feel bad until i increased my activites everything got worse.
