General Rant
« on: May 16, 2006, 03:41:40 PM »
Well i'm still waiting for that elusive MRI, i've been waiting for 2.5 months now and i've just been told it'll be at least another couple of months because I classify as non urgent. And then of course after that you have to wait for an appointment to see the doctor to get the results, so basically since my first referral, (Which took years and years to get) I'll have been waiting almost a year before they even decide whats wrong with it. That is of course if the MRI shows anything up. I'm so bored of living with this now, it effects every moment of my life waking and not sleeping.  My boyfriend is getting pissed off as are my friends and flatmates, cos i can't do anything and i'm complaining about my knee all the bleedin time, i'm even pissing myself off about it now.
Sorry I know that ranting on here wont make it any better and there is no wonder cure or miracle answer it's just good to vent everynow and again at people who arent my family.
Will anyone ever believe me :(

If you have any possibility at all can you seek private help ?
Does your knee prevent you from working..maybe there's something you can do to apply to get in earlier. I know this with waiting, it's not fun and not human at all.
Calling and complaining that you are in pain can sometimes help get time earlier. Worth a try at least. Hope you get appointment soon.

I know everythign you are going through. The NHS are a joke and its taking ages for appointements. My girlfriend is sick of me cause i cant do normal things like go shoping for hours and even my sex life is suffering. My social life is bad cause i used to play football 3/4 days a week and the team i play for have already won a Cup and looking to win the league on saturday and im not apart of it cause of my injury.

We all feel the same pain.
Mniscus removed form right knee
Miniscus removed from left knee
ACL ruptured left knee
ACL recon left knee

Back playing football, 5 times a week and arguably as fit as i was!!

Thanks for that but after a 3 month wait and being told it'll be another 2 months, i've finally got a date through for 6th June, so i've decided ranting is the way to go.
