saw doctor last week and he sent me for ultrasound. I had seroma on back of knee causing knife like pain and I have severe fluid on my knee, I went to see doctor today 3-26-18 and I called in advance that I needed a cortisone shot for pain. The doctor was going to get me nonsteroidal pain medication but the specialty pharmacy sent anabolic steroids which I decided to use and it caused me to get extremely nauseated. Ended up in ER from the medication. I wanted to get a steroid shot for my TKR pain and I called doctor office and I was told I could get one with my extreme pain. I went toda, 3-26-18 at 9:30am. I was to see the doctor but a PA showed up and I told him I had extreme pain. He said he could tell my leg was swollen. I told him I was in extreme pain crying all of the time. He said there was nothing I could do. I left and went to ER with a high BP, 102 temperature and when they pushed on my knee, infection poured out of the incision. So I will need another surgery. I am not going back to my doctor. On IV antibiotics in hospital until I can get a doctor to look at my knee. So all of you out there on blogs I read telling people it will get better need to be aware we are not all the same!
