I'm sorry to hear that happened to you. I do worry that surgery is overrecommended, especially considering the potential negative repurcussios of surgery. I notice in your story that you requested an MRI? Did your initial doctor advice against an MRI or was that an option that he gave you to do or not do? I'm also wondering, how long were you in pain prior to the coritzone injection and between the cortizone injection and the mri?
I worry a lot about knee injury, and I'm also a bit of a hypochondriac, so I'm really curious to learn more about how these events came about.
