Ok Dr I come into you after going through 2 others (starting 3 months ago)to get here. I originally went in for this problem 16 years ago. Now if it hasnt gotten better (in fact its gotten much worse) in 16 fucking years why are you telling me to think about the surgery and come back in three months. I want it now! I am fucking tired of not being able to train and I dont want to wait another three months. Why did you just keep cutting me off and not listening to me? I am so friggin frustrated...

I am going to call up Kaiser tomorrow and insist they let me see a different orthopedic surgeon for a second opinion.

He was too busy trying to tell me that surgery wouldnt completely remove the bump from my knee (lookswise) and I was trying to explain to him that I dont give a crap what it looks like as long as it doesnt randomly hurt like hell.

Need new doctor. Call Kaiser.. don't let them say no.. if they do ask for their supervisor, threaten write a written appeal and cc the insurance commissioner .. that usually scares 'em good!<br><br>
That 3 month BS is total .. well BS. They have like this prescribing code they all have - refer you to PT for 3 months... let you use up most or all of your PT bennie BEFORE surgery .. then when you get the surgery you are up the creek... ( have the T-shirt and scars!)<br>
The last knee thing, I told my doc- Um I don't think so ... want referral TO-DAY. Then Ask around for a really good,... THE BEST ortho you can find for sports. OUr good ones here all work on the Ski teams.<br>
I hope you are able to move the wheels of medical stupidity!

Update: I have an appointment tomorrow with a different Dr because they had a cancelation! <img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"><br><br>
This is what the other Drs notes say online:<br>
"<span style="font-size:small;">Continue with activity as tolerated.<span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:arial;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">Return if symptoms worsen or fail to improve, or in about 4 weeks (around 4/7/200<img alt="cool.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif">."</span></span></span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="font-size:small;"><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:arial;">It only 4 weeks because he said three months and I said hell no...I am not living like this for another 3 months. Yet another Dr, it appears, did not take me seriously...</span></span></span></span>
