I went to see a rheumatologist today regarding, y fibromyalgia and polymyalgia. She looked at the xrays and mri scar report which my orthopaedic surgeon had done. The mri report said that there was a lot of debris and damage as well as a left sided meniscus tear. Will the tear be making my knee even more painful? My surgeon has been on study leave and hasn't yet seen the report so I'm waiting for him to look at the report and arrange for another appointment where he will hopefully list me for a tkr. I spoke to the waiting list lady who told me that it's currenly about 6 months wait due to bed issues at Christmas and the doctors strikes. I think it will be at least Christmas before I get my op, goodness knows how I'm going to manage until then as I'm in such horrible pain and it's really affecting my quality of life.
