meniscus stuck in fracture after surgery
« on: July 17, 2012, 03:31:40 AM »
Tried in another section now here.    short version    TPF surgery last Aug 25. 3 months NWB.  started PT.   3 months in major pain. pain pills stopped bye doctor because 3 months out of surgery[another story]. 2 more month pt isn't working and is over. Took 2 more months to get the doctor to take hardware out and scope the knee. During scoping he found the meniscus was stuck in the fracture of the TPF surgery. I have no insurrance, so this is all on me.  Has anyone ever heard of this happening. The doctor did pry the menicus out of the fracture and trimmed it a little. So now I have lost 7 months and am now back in PT and doctor has released me for work. Knee is a little better, but not construction work better.  Any thoughts or opinions would be great.  Don't hold back.  thanks        Dougeee    >:(
