Hi all :) I hope you all are having a wonderful day!!!
I hurt my right knee while I was running back in January. It wasn't getting any better by March so my husband told me to go to the doctor because i wouldn't go. lol I went to the Quick care doctor and they put a brace on my knee. They said they thought it was a meniscus tear and if it wasn't better in 2 weeks, go to my family doctor. I went to my family doctor ....over a few weeks he gave me a cortisone shot, MRI and PT. PT also said a meniscus tear but family doctor said he didn't think so. He sent me to a orthopedic dr.
Ortho Dr. said it is questionable if it is meniscus tear so he said I could do one of the following ......
A......live with it
B....PT for 6 weeks if doesn't work surgery and 6 weeks PT
c......Surgery and 6 weeks PT
I have a very high level for pain so I could live with it but I am 37 do I really want too? NO
Option B didn't seem to work because I still workout and that isn't working plus my first PT wouldn't work with this kind of injury.
Option C....who wants surgery!!! LOL
What are your thoughts?
