Hello to all, I had my pkr in April 2016. I started off having quite a bit of issues a few months back. Knew was giving out and causing me to fall and injuring other things. My knee snaps,pops and grinds. I was told this was normal with the kneecap replacement. So I kept complaining about the pain,difficulty sleeping and being able to just sit down and get up.I have become very depressed. I have had 2 opinions from pain Dr's that say I don't have crps.Both Drs thought that this was being pushed off and was not gonna diagnose me with crps because they didn't believe that's what was wrong.10 says ago I had my knee drained because I'm also dealing with moderate swelling. All blood off the knee was sent off to test and everything was fine. Yesterday I had a arthogram. So my present Dr sent me to have a new Dr take a look at things,just for a second opinion. They found on the arthrogram and ct that Medial Articular Cartilage Delamation was 6mm x 15mm. This new Drs taste of words were not very good. He said it wasn't time for a tkr and a scope with debridement and microfiber drilling could be beneficial. However after leaving the office I read my clinic notes. He has said I was being over dramatic and believed that my injury is part of the pain but doesn't think that it's all related to that injury. I'm satisfied with his decision in not having a tkr right now and I'm fine with a scope. The issue is I have complained for months about the great deal of pain and suffering I have endured. Yet I was told the xrays look very good. I'm happy to know that this was not in my head. How can a doctor say someone is being dramatic? My knee hurts, it's swollen and they was poking around on it yesterday. It's a little tender. When he picked my leg up and grabbed it around my ankle and my knee dropped was excruciating pain. Was I suppose to smile and say that it felt good? Sorry about ranting and making this so long. I just want other people advise on what should I do? Plus this new Dr said that I'm not far from needing a tkr. He said let's see if you get any relief from the other surgery? I'm not a guinea pig and I'm tired of being sent here and there for this and that. It's wearing me out physically and mentally. Thanks for any info.
