I am just interested to hear if anyone has managed to have a knee replacement done when they are overweight.
The reason I ask is because I am finding it impossible to find anyone that will help me.
I have been told I need both my knees doing but was told I had to have a BMI below 40. I set about losing weight and managed to lose 2.5 stone but still not quite at 40BMI. Feeling pleased with my progress I went back to the specialist who then said the goal was now a BMI of 35. I have now been told I have to get it to 32. It seems every time I go back and have lost a bit they lower the weight I have to get to.
I am now so fed up with it all as it seems they are just not prepared to ever do it.
I am 53 years old and they have mentioned I am a bit too young aswell.
Just be interested to see if this is normal.
P.S I was told if I paid to have it done private they would do it straight away!!!!
