Topic: Knee surgery for me!
As many of you may know I've been suffering with left knee pain since August of 2011. I'm going in for surgery next week Thursday. Yippee! I never thought that I'd be excited for surgery, but hopefully I will be able to walk correctly again. I went to another orthopod and he did an MRI and I have two torn meniscus' and a chunk of bone in the knee. I will be off work for a little over a week.
I had to go back to my PCP for a pre-op physical and I told him that if he ever tried to send my back to the first ortho doc, then I was going to fire him as my PCP. He told me I was the third person in 2 weeks to complain about that ortho, so he is NOT going to refer patients to him any more. YES! The guy just was NOT a good doctor.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
