  • i think they can do a lot with lasers now, which should make everything easier, if they have to do surgery. i know someone who did not heal from his knee surgery until he quit taking his anti inflammatory medication. the body swelling is a part of the healing process, so to prevent that can prevent healing. just thought i would throw that in there! hopefully you won't need to do any surgery at all!
    good luck!
