Cobalt concerns


#1

G’day; Both my knee joints were removed and completely replaced
with a cobalt chromium alloy and high density polythene plastic. I
have had these prosthetics for about 7 -8 years and the only
difficulties with them is one cannot kneel - it hurts too much to
kneel! Incidentally the surgeon also straightened my very bandy
legs at the same time. I couldn’t catch a pig in a passageway
previously!

Cheers for now,
