so you have such bad pain that you can't sleep, and you went to hospital several times, and each time they told you that you were time wasting and to go away?

Yes i know we are lucky to have a national health service and for the most part i have no complaints, but with my gallstones (i know it is gallstones!) they aren't interested in doing anything more than an ultrasound which showed nothing probably because i had passed them already, which was so painful i made someone drive me to Margate hospital at 3am on a Sunday morning! And with my neck the most they will do is poke and prod and say everything is fine because i'm not paralyzed, yet it's still mega painful whenever i move my head!

Knee Update : so after an MRI appears that I have torn cartilage which is moving and now drifting up around the top of my kneecap...

Surgery Required!

Keyhole to remove the debris, and they are on about lazering the remainder of the torn part to create scar tissue which will help replace the missing bit.

They are going to rush me in and do it before xmas... 2 weeks off at least im told.

Glad I have some answers now, actually looking forward to getting this sorted so I can get back on track.

Just goes to show I was right to ignore my GP!!  :o  If I was to listen to him, Id be having regular physio on a knee which would never heal and probably be getting worse by now!

Is this being done privately or on the NHS?
