HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!
This has been a traumatic year or most of us and I think we are all glad to be at the end of it! I managed to put off having my next hip replacement – a year without an operation! But some of you had more operations than you care to remember, or are still dealing with the fallout of the revisions from the disastrous metal on metal hips.
I am now a firm believer in ceramic on ceramic but I am sure many of you are equally as happy with other revisions.
Thank you so much for making Earlsview a meeting point for all of us! Nearly 300,000 visits since it was set up July 2011.
All the very best for 2013 and beyond!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 220,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 4 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!
And a fabulous year ahead to you Earl and all your loyal supporters !! May it be filled with fun and frivolity..(and who knows…maybe a bit of justice from S&N.) K
Thanks! And happy new year to you too! Justice is good! Earl
A Happy, Healthy, Better New Year to All.
Earl you have provided a great highway of knowledge, information, purpose and an endless amount of work into this blog. Resultantly, you have helped me tremendously as well as I to others through your blog.
You have enabled folks to communicate and work on health issues we are facing due to medical device malfunctions and failures.
It is important I and others keep our spirits high as we will face tremendous challenges, getting well being the primary importance and maintaining our will to see justice and accountability due to those who are suffering.
Smith & Nephew is but one of the device manufacturers that have been more concerned with rate of returns to their investors as opposed to the safety and well being of human beings.
No matter how large a company may be Smith & Nephew will be held accountable for the pain and suffering caused by their Birmingham hip resurfacing device.
The preemption laws were created to prevent litigation by folks for every thing that may go wrong with a device, the law was not created to harbor a company from a device bringing harm to more than an acceptable percentage of failures.
That being said the Birmingham hip resurfacing device has gone way beyond the acceptable rate of failures.
It is easy to get discouraged, DON’T BE DISCOURAGED, remember ” David and Goliath. ” Smith & Nephew is no innocent lamb. They are repeat offenders of the kickback laws, they are being sued buy the United States of America on a whistleblower case.
I would strongly suggest anyone suffering from the Birmingham hip device see a surgeon immediately.
Once you feel up to it write to the FOIA ( freedom of information act ) in other countries you may have sane or similar requesting for all correspondence that took place between the FDA and Smith and Nephew, regarding their application for approval to market the bhr in the USA, prior to approval, during approval and post approval. I am awaiting a response.
You would think by the mere name freedom of information I could look up this information myself, NOT SO ? I have corresponded with several offices within the FOIA all ready. It is time consuming, discouraging and easy for one to say the HELL with this, PLEASE don’t give up because that is exactly what the manufacturer is banking on.
Feel Good about yourselves and what you believe in remain TENACIOUS.
