Well got my shots today, and my surgeon spent a total of 4 minutes talking with me. I was the last patient of the day, and it was snowing and it was apparent they wanted out. When I told him of the fall in December, his comment was, "You ought not be doing that!" How's the weight loss going, doesn't look too good. So while my knees feel a bit better tonight, when I see my GP later next month I will be going to a different orthopedic surgeon. Busy day, worked, went to doctor, took Communion to the Nursing home this afternoon. I was beat when I got home and made supper. Wasn't much tomato basil soup and grilled cheese sandwich. Hit the spot. Now after watching 4 hours of the impeachment, I am heading for my hour of quiet, bible reading, and then to bed. Tomorrow is a quieter day. And it is Mexican dinner night!

    Doesn't seem like your doctor is willing to work with you. Seems like something else should be done. I know that's easier typed than done. It's hard, but I think your GP would help you do something else. I know exercise can't be your friend cause then you are in extreme pain for weeks. I'm just wondering why they won't take the chance and do the surgery anyway.

    I agree with you—you do need a new doctor—at least one that is really concerned. ((HUGS))

    You get what you pay for.. patients need to be able to demand their needs.. When I go to a new doc, I stand in front of the closed door with my list of items to address, do not let them leave until I address all of them.

    It sounds to me like your orthopedic Dr. is a real piece of work. You definitely need a new one. Remember, your Dr. works for you. I love tomato basil soup and grilled cheese in the winter.

    Glad to hear you are going to see another Dr. and in your area there should be plenty of then within a hour or so drive. I"m glad that the shot is working but it is just a band aid on a more serious problem that needs to be taken care of, you have put up with these knees for how many years?

    I DON;T BLAME YOU FOR GOING TO A DIFFERENT DOCTOR. I HAD THE SAME THING FOR LUNCH YESTERDAY. I HOPE THE SHOTS HELP. GET SOME REST AND TAKE CARE.
