Do I need to tell OS
« on: July 06, 2006, 09:39:36 AM »
Hi everyone,

Just a bit of advise on what I should do, I had microfracture done 2 weeks ago, OS said no weights, no impact etc.  I had a car crash last night and bashed both my kneecaps off the dash, they're pretty sore but I really don't think I've done any damage (at least definitely nothing major), do you think I should inform him about this or just wait and tell him at my next appointment in 6 weeks time?  Any thoughts?  Thanks

Natalie.

Hi,

I think you should tell your OS straight away. He may want to see you before your next appt if only to reassure himself that you've not done any further damage.

Agreed, it's probably best to tell him. He may not want to see you.... until your next appointment but it's important for him to know I think. ;)

I've called and left a message for him.  Thanks for the advice.
