~What is going on here?~
« 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!

Hey Guys!

Thank-you all very much ;) Well, my Mom & PTs really want me to see Dr. Maguire. I was told he is, 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  ;)
