Last year I tried to find a surgeon who would do my knee replacements although I am very overweight. I had some good advice and one or two names came up but they were not interested in me because I was heavy. At that time I was 19st 2lbs, now I am 18stone. My local surgeon won't consider me until I am 16st 7lbs. I will have to pay privately. I live in Southern Ireland. My pain is getting worse and worse and I have terrible groin pain as well now. I can't stand this much longer. I MUST get them done soon. I can hardly walk now. Does anyone please know a good surgeon who will operate on an obese person and can give me their details. I have rung loads up but nobody wants to know. There must be someone, somewhere, please. I can't stop getting tearful as the pain is so bad. In the UK or Ireland for preference. I am sorry to moan a lot as I know many people are also in terrible pain. I am 5ft 4" in height. I think I've had enough now.
