Ex-Ray CD and the Radiologist’s Report last Friday, Nov 12th. I wanted it so I could take it to the Rheumatologist. Now the Orthopedic had said I had two meniscus tears, one on the outside of my right knee, and the other on the inside of my left knee. I believed everyone with their diagnosis, Orthopedic, two meniscus tears, the Rheumatologist, my actual condition was worse than what the Ex-Ray shows, blah, blah, blah. Well based on the Radiologist’s report, what each, Rheumatologist and Orthopedic, said I have I don’t have. The only way one can see meniscus tears, or even the meniscus is with an MRI, which I didn’t have. The Rheumatologist said both my leg bones were rubbing against each other, they are not. It is my patella, kneecap, rubbing against my thigh bone, which can be mitigated by strengthening my quadriceps (Wii Fit/Plus) doesn’t have exercises for that. Folks, make friends with someone from the Medical Community who can read medicaleze.
I’m not sure if all the subterfuge is due to an attempt to get me approved for Physical Therapy quicker (Orthopedic being the referring doctor), or the need to get a down payment, mortgage payment, etc by the Rheumatologist, who had suggested very expensive shots for both knees twice a year: Shots that can cost up to $1,500 dollars for a three shot procedure, times 2, for one knee alone.
