King Juan Carlos has not looked very well for quite a while, but honestly, I don't think I've seen him look this "sick/bad". He looks very feeble and tired to me. Also, it appears that he's lost a considerable amount of weight just since this last operation.

The King certainly has aged considerably but as long as his mind is sharp there is no reason for his reign to end. The Queen and Prince Filipe can pick up the slack. He is a man who has proved that there is a place in the world for a monarch.

Just to think he will have to undergo another operation during the upcoming weeks.

I just wish I could feel sorry for him, I just *don't*, he made his bed now let him sleep in it. The way he treats his wife, his son and the trip with his mistress, the way he protects his daughter from the courts when she and her husband have stolen money, he is not a man to be respected nor is he fit to be a king. Something I strongly believe in" Respect is not a given in life just because a person has money, position, power or title, Respect is only given by how you treat other human beings", he deserves no respect at all. Sorry if this upsets anyone, He just does not deserve the respect of the Spanish people. Being a royal means you should set an example for the people , he didn't.

The King looks thinner but still frail at his reappearance on Monday and said he's 'feeling better'

I feel bad that he has poor health. Surgery is so tough and he has had the courage to go under the knife time and again ... and he is still not done. I don't condone his affairs, yet think there may be another side to the story. Queen Sofia is said to be a difficult person and for whatever reason, they have an unhappy marriage. I feel bad for both of them that they can't divorce and find happiness in new relationships. I think his life is probably very lonely.

It takes a couple of months for people to start feeling better after surgeries like this. It's going take a year before bones heal completely, 100%. And he's older. I think he's going forward one day at a time. Growing old is not for sissies !!

The King has lost ten kilos since last March "by prescription" and is now "much better" than before, a spokesperson for the Zarzuela Palace reported after Don Juan Carlos submits a slimmer look in the recorded message video for the Ibero-American summit.

The King has further surgery ahead in December so the road to recovery will be a long drawn out one!

Now the king has a temporary hip prosthesis until the infection is cured, when he finished antibiotic treatment in late November, he should have another surgery to place the definitive prosthesis.
