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.
Update: I have an appointment tomorrow with a different Dr because they had a cancelation! <img alt="banana.gif" src=""><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="">."</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> her good ones though...lik Irises or Lillies!

I got what I wanted. I felt bad complaining about the other guy since my new doc works in the same office and I am sure knows him well but I told him why I was unhappy (didnt feel listened to) and he is going to book me for surgery. I am going to have to wait a while (few months) but at least I am in line! I never thought I would be so happy to have surgery. I am trying to figure out what life will be like without knee pain...I can't remember since it started when I was 12.
