"Meniscus operation failed procedure"

About: Solihull Hospital

Anything else?

I had an x ray and MRI scan with the hospital back in December 2012 and January 2013 . The diagnosis of a torn meniscus was given by the doctor so I have agreed to be operated by them as keyhole surgery. I have waited 7 months for the appointment and after I had the operation in July he told me there is no torn meniscus. Requested opinion of a physiotherapist turned out it was the Medium Lateral Ligament to blame which is trill sticking out and haven't been able to run or walk property for over seven months. Also I have heard other people in the ward who have complained of the sme issue. I do not now what to do anymore as I can't afford private care. I should be walking on crutches and I wasn't even offered physiotherapy.
