    @Celle yes I understand that, I'm in the process of getting Brit citizenship. Life is never simple especially when you have a bad knee replacement . I lived in Switzerland for a few years and they consider the Italian system absurd. They also picked up my genetic heart condition completely...

    TKR Pain in my TKR done in 2013 . Revision?

    to answer your valid questions I've found a revisionist in Milan to call once I have my scan. Every surgeon in Italy works within the state system of hospitals for operations No one in Italy pays for operations, except the stinking rich in private hospitals. What you can pay for is consultations...

    @Celle that is precisely the job of a Legal doctor in Italy . My cost would be only the consultation and since I am unemployed the state would have to bear the cost of the revision. I cannot possibly pay for that privately .

    @Celle thank-you so much for your comment and for reading my back story. I had tried to forget how horrendous being in hospital in Italy really was, I nearly went out of my mind.

    Thanks, no I haven't seen a revisions specialist nor my surgeon yet. I went for a regular visit to an orthopedic in the hospital. Who told me to go back to my OS and to go for the Nuclear scan. In the state system you get whoever is on duty. In order to see your original surgeon you have to...

    How do you find a revision specialist? The operation was carried out in an Italian hospital via my state medical card. I'm considering speaking to a Legal Doctor Who specialises in bringing damage cases.
