This forum always gives me sensible advice so here I am again. The medics thought I may have referred pain from the hip to the knee, and have injected the hip with no effect. I stopped pain relief for a couple of days and nearly severed my leg from my body as the pain was so intense!! So back on Morphine and have insisted on seeing the muscular unit next week. I can only think that a scan of the knee is the only option now but the Dorset CT are so scared of spending any unnecessary (in their view) money that I am not convinced that this will be offered as I have requested a scan before without a result. Any advice from you would be very very welcome.
