Problems with my knee replacement

What I would expect from a good warranty:
If anything goes wrong with the implant and has to be replaced the manufacture should pay for the replacement and also all doctor and hospital billings. We are not talking about something small. I wasn’t able to drive for 6 wks and missed so much work.

Linda’s story:
Was never offered a choice. Have shifting but they say it’s not bad enough to do revision surgery. Feels like bottom goes one way and top goes another. Also have burning sensation when I try to kneel. Have to have other knee replaced and will be going to different doctor and have a different brand of knee replacement.
