I have Fibro, osteoarthritis in many joints, bursitis, early stage copd and have now been diagnosed with cataracts. I have my pre op assessment for this next week. I visited a gp several weeks ago as my right knee was giving m,e so much pain and kept giving way he to me to try some cream and come back if no improvement. I went back a couple of weeks and saw another GP who i dont particulary like \9i have to write things down so i dont forget) i said just a min i have written down what i want to talk to you about and she looked very impatient. i told he there was no improvement in my knee so she said "I dont need to examine it as the previous doctor did will send you for an x ray" went there then 7 days later phoned surgery and receptionist said it came back normal. i then made another appointment to see her again which is tomorrow but my knee is still very painfull - pain is worse when i am going upstairs but it does not go away. What can i ask her to do now as obviously there is something wrong even if the x ray came back normal. ANY IDEAS PLEASE
