Dr Lawrence performed 2 surgeries on my knee and I am in as much pain, if not more than before he did the surgeries. My knee has been swollen and hurting since he did knee replacement surgery in 2015. He did another surgery in 2016 and to this day my knee is still swollen and I am in pain. I tried to tell Dr Lawrence that maybe it is the actual knee replacement device, but he did not bother to take that into consideration. Instead he pawned me off to Dr Lucas Burton who said it may be a disc in my back. A disc in my back would not cause the pain or swelling that I have in my knee. Dr Lawrence was more concerned about me going back to work than my knee being swollen and painful.
It's been 3 days and my insurance company told me my xrays and info has not been faxed to them. I am in constant pain and no sleep for 3 weeks. My kneecap cartilage is wrapped around my knee joint. I know they are busy but how long does it take to fax a few pages. The nurse tried to blame it on the insurance company. I don't appreciate the treatment. Dr. Lawrence is a great 3 time surgeon.
I believe he knows what he is doing, but I think he needs to listen to the patient closer. Only the patient knows what's going on. If a patient is in just as much pain as he had before a surgery or more, it doesn't mean he or she is just looking for pain meds, it means the sugary was unsuccessful. Not everyone is addicted or will become addicted to the meds. Some of us just want to live a semi normal life again.
