People on here don't seem to understand, when you're severely depressed..you don't want to fix yourself. There's almost a comfort at a point in what you're doing, or not doing I should say. You also lack the energy to do those things, even to eat (as we see on that skimpy tray of food at the start of the movie). Bruce, has turned into Harvey Dent when he was in that hospital bed after he learnt of Rachel's death. Dent didn't want to help himself, he refused it. When you're depressed or angry like that, you embrace it until somebody helps you or you come to the realization yourself that you need to move on.

This is why Bruce didn't get the brace until Selina and Bane came into his life and saw the possibility of Batman. And Blake was another character that opened his eyes when he learnt that orphans weren't getting what they were supposed to in schools.

He could have easily went to get surgery or knocked on Fox's door during those 8 years. But it's not something he wanted to do.
