It has been 2 months 1 week since i tore the ligaments in my knee ....
First night, Doctor tells me i will be walking the next day, not even a painkiller prescription, as if i was making the pain up.
A week later i see my GP as knee swelling will not go down. a Month later a physio finally see's me, a student. His advice, get off the crutches and walk on the bad knee.
A month after that, I have the MRI scan, the physio takes a glance at the results (of which I still have not received) and advises me to get back on 2 crutches - Thanks buddy, I've made my condition a lot worse now and am waiting for help.
Physio department says I have been referred to Ortho, whilst the Ortho claim they do not have any files for me.
So what happens next? ..... your guess is as good as mine. I sit here 2 months after being injured without a clue as to what treatment i need, what surgery i may require. My guess, my knee is a lot worse because I was taken to West Mid the night i tore my knee.
I pay taxes, I work on a bad knee, I sleep 3 hours a night due to the pain. Terrible service.
