I believe the problem is the anterior meniscus being torn. Luckily my regular MD is an ultra-marathoner and the track club MD and the ortho is a marathoner, so I am in good hands. Specifically not "knife happy" hands as my regular MD said.
Several people have been talking about rehab. I dont like the sound of that. (I used to be the psych at an inpatient rehab facility. How ironic. )I had been planning to return to work monday, now will try tuesday.
I have found one thing for me. Stick to your profession. I have always believed in being an educated consumer, however the more I read about surgery, meniscal tears etc, the more I remember I know psyche's. Period. Not knees. I am paying for his knowledge of knees. How does the quote go about Dr's (or lawyers )who do their own case have a fool for a Dr.
I appreciate being able to blow off some steam. This has been very frustrating, and you guys have been great.
