I went to a doctor in January with pains in my knee. He performed athroscopic surgery in March. I went back complaining about the continued pain and was told I had arthritis and needed PT. He did not take any post-op x-rays or MRIs. I then went back with the same problem on my other knee, and again with no x-rays or mris his diagnosis was the same. Arthritis and I needed PT. I finally went to another doctor and now I have MRI results for both knees. The one he performed the surgery on has water iin it and the bones are getting soft. So the water will have to be drained. The new knee I complained about has a torn ligament and edema around the bone marrow. I was lucky to be able to go and get a second opinion but now I'm stuck at home until I find an orthopedic surgeon that will fix these problems. In the meantime I've lost days of work and time from my life I'll never get back. By the way, the MRI reports mention nothing of arthritis. I'm soooo angry. And everytime I think of his bedside manner I want to cry!!! Does anyone know if this warrants a lawsuit? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
