Went to the doctors back in May, due to my knee playing up. He normally tries to extract any fluid then gives me a cortisone injection hardly any fluid came out at that consultation.
The injection only lasted a couple of weeks. Rang the doctors, he rang back and said it needs more investigation with MRI referral and knee specialist. Went for my MRI in August, had to wait until December to see a specialist at Gobowen. He said I need an operation to fix a torn cartridge and clear any debris.
During this time the trouble and pain has been bad but not excessive. I manage by using anti-inflammatory which I bought. I have not had any consultations refer to correct pain relief. The scale has been quite long too.
