update on yesterdays meeting with specalist

well i whent to see the knee specalist yesterday and took pictures of my feet with me he was realy supprised at what happened .

the knee was grade 3 on the inside grade 1 on pattela and acl streatched

it looks like you are going to have to live with this its not that bad

so from that i gathered cos i can bend the bugger to way past 90 deg full bend now thats with all the effort going in he is not even going to do a half knee replacement

he told me it didnt warrant a new knee yet. (wso im at a loss with this )

i also showed him my hands and told him about the second oppinion i got appertaining to the problems i was having and the diagnosis of a sponduropathy enthesis

which he said what has your doctor doner about this

i informed him they didnt want me running about all over the place and he was not impressed he said i will be wrtighting to your doctor .

meanwhile the other day i whent seeing them of a nother letter sent from wrightington and the doctors said they could not garantee that i would be able to see that rumotologist so its a wait and see in that respect.

also he said he would get another mri doner of my back which will take max 6 weeks to do .

i hope i get to see the private rumi i saw privatley

but he was not impressed with my doctor given the pictures of my feet and the problems i had.

but i do feel that that this thing riddled through me in the early stages last year

  • John you are having just as hard a time of it as i am. You are getting nowhere fast aren't you. I would go and see your dr again and see if he can get things sorted out once and for all.xxx

  • They seem to have you 'running' all over the place,not really getting an answer. Very frustrating for you. Take care x

  • I think this us appalling...how can they do this? can't you just shout at them? At least that way you can vent some if your frustration
