Re: tendon trouble ?
Perhaps seeing another orthopedic knee surgeon is an option. I recently changed knee doctors after about 8 years with a good doctor who is now way too sports medicine oriented for what I need. With severe arthritis I needed a different kind of orthopedic knee surgeon. Now I'm set for a 5 injection course of Supartz. My prior surgoen said my insurance would not improve these shots, but this new doctor said that the right data sent to an insurance company should result in approval and it did!
Don't get me wrong, I'm not sure it'll work and I worry it wont given what I have to pay for it. But I almost felt guilty leaving my old knee surgeon but now am so very glad that I did.
