Well the 2nd NS called to say I'm not a candidate for surgery. Mind you, I don't want surgery, just want the pain to go away! Nobody has yet to sit down and go over the MRI report with me, will see my OS next week to go over it after he gets back from a much needed vacation. Guess I'm just wanting to vent right now, sorry!! I started taking my Darvocet yesterday after a trip to the grocery store became painful. Darvocet was prescribed prior to knee surgery in Feb and still had some left over.
So, when the drs say no surgery and we need to discuss other options, what does that mean? What are the long term outcomes of other options? I've already been out on STD since Feb for my meniscectomy, dr told me then I needed a different line of work. Im guessing I cant be released to go back to a high impact job that involves heavy lifting and climbing stairs 10 hrs a day??? Sorry, I'm just scared, nervous and confused.
