Newbie with knee injury
#1
New to site...injury occurred in WA 3 mo ago. No prob w L & I so far, but here are basics. Tore meniscus. Had arthroscopic repair, but knee is worse now. I am in late 50's, previously had 4 surgeries on knees over 30 years. Needless to say, knee replacement has come up, but I am trying to find info to help me because I really believe injury made this come up as the joint was doing well previously but just is not healing due to bone on bone. What should I be prepared for? Should I start pushing for the replacement when I feel strongly that I would rather spend time recovering from a replacement and getting strong again to go back to work. Do I address this with my doctor? Case manager? I am in so much pain daily I can't do normal things, but PT thinks it's "getting better" and told me WC doesn't care if it hurts. How do I start to get this on the table for consideration, and what might I be up against??? Thanks to all.
