Big Regret

Saw him for 5 minutes before my surgery for a meniscus tear. Never saw him again. That was 7 months ago. Have had continued pain, swelling. Had knee drained, cortisone shot, gel shot and still pain, sometimes worse than before surgery. Very disappointed. Thinking of seeing another orthopedist.
