I think the negative about removing the leg was just that: removing the leg. House was willing to go through the pain to NOT have to lose his leg. There's probably some background info we don't have yet as to why he was so dead set against removing the leg. Particularly since, as a doctor, he had to know how great the current appliances are for people who lose limbs.Originally Posted by Leftcoaster
Yeah, I think he's was probably very upset with her after she went against his wishes and had them do the procedure anyway. The feeling I got from her (I can't remember the name of Sela's character) discussion with Cutty was that the pain would eventually end his life. If you live with debilitating pain over a very very long time, it often ends up sending you into horrible depression and you either commit suicide or go insane. Look at how much pain he's still in - he's popping those pills all the time - and that's after the surgery to reduce the pain.
I have to say (on a purely shallow level) that Hugh Laurie's got some nice gams AND it was nice to see him have scenes with someone he has a different relationship with (rather than just a co-worker). We haven't seen him with Sela too much but they seem to have good chemistry
