What to do if I had a total right knee replacement 7 years ago and found out 2 years ago that I have severe spinal damage because the hardware they put in was too large?

Question Details: My left side is 2 inches shorter than my right therefore that puts a lot of stress on my spine. This has caused a lot of damage.However, I did not know this until 2 years ago, so how can I have sued 6 years ago? That's ridiculous. Do I have a case now? I am 56 years old and I am on permanent disability I will live the rest of my life in severe pain. This is not right. How can somebody get away with this?
