Title: ~What is going on here?~
Post by: doodlebugrr on January 10, 2005, 07:09:46 AM
Hey guys

I have also posted this in "spiritual help & encouragement", not quite sure where it should go. Well I am just so sick & tired of everything  :'(   Ever since the surgery in October my right knee just keeps going downhill. It now gives out at LeAsT 2 times a day, sometimes as much as 4  :-/  ! It also hurts way worse than it ever has. My left knee has locked up 4 times & is also hurting almost as bad as my right  ???  . My OS has no idea about my left knee because I havent seen him since that started. Why would it lock up?? I have been told because of a meniscus tear, is that all it could be?? I am still in PT 3 times a week, they have no idea what is wrong with my right knee & neither does my OS. I am not suppose to go back to my OS until the 1st of February, but I told my parents I just cant take it anymore & we should schedule it earlier. So we are going to change it tomorrow & make my appointment for another OS to get a sencond opinion (my OS recomened getting a second opion). Well, any advice on anything would be very great  ;)  :) Sorry for complaing guys.
thanx in advance  ;)

Hey Bekah,
I'm sorry you're in so much pain. I think going to get a second opinion is a great idea.
I hope everything works out for ya!

BeKa,
Who did you decide to see? I'm sorry your knee is still bothering you so. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Hey Guys!

Thank-you all very much ;) Well, my Mom & PTs really want me to see Dr. Maguire. I was told he is gruff.....lol, they explained what it meant & apperantly, he doesnt joke or be friendly, all he does is tell you what is wrong with you and say what you need done, but he is supposedly a really good OS. He is in the same office as my OS, so I will just see him to start & then if I need or want another opion, I am gonna go the long car ride to see Dr. Barnthouse. Thanks again guys  ;)
