My names phill I'm new here but I don't know where else to turn.
A year and a half ago I had accident in work I fell of the bottom runs of Tower scaffolding with a lead roll on my shoulder. I dislocated my patella, shered a price of bone and tore my Mcl.
Since doing this I have had key hole surgery and the surgeon removed a bone fragment from my knee and preformed a chondroplasrty.
A Yeah and a half later my knee still hasent gotten any better I can jump, kick or run. Walking up.the stairs is painful and due to over compensation my other knee is now showing signs of similar pain.
My referral to.the NHS basically said there is nothing they can do and will not preform any other surgery as it could make the knee worse and will not preform a knee replacement as I'm only 26.
This is seriously affecting my life. I can't play sports daily activities hurt, I struggle with pain in my job, I can't train legs in the gym and I envision that things are only going to get worse.
Where do I go from here? What can I do?
Could anyone please help with some advice as I'm totally lost and don't know where to turn
Thanks so much
