Last night was a complete nightmare - spent all night trying this cream and that and painkillers.

Rung doctor's this morning and receptionist answered - I told her that the doctor (locum) I spoke to some weeks ago would need to be in contact with me.

She said oh yes he has given you everything he can give you - you do need new knees! Well I said I need face to face this time so I have to ring about 8.30 am next week to get an appointment to see him.

I know other things can be wrong with your knees (although not exactly) perhaps fluid, calcium I don't know but know I need help.

My sister has a friend a lady she meets now and again and she got a new knee after waiting 8 years, well sorry, I couldn't wait 8 years - I'd be swinging from the bannisters. I may remortgage my house who knows.

ah thanks Pasta
If you are with bennedon once it has been confirmed by drs not a receptionist ( who I don’t believe for 1 minute said that) then you contact bennedon who will get you an appointment to confirm diagnosis and arrange surgery all without costing you a bean
How are you today Jenny?

Red - I started this post on my Ipad and lost it - so am on computer. How dare you Red accuse me of lying about the receptionist - she said it - I couldn't believe it, she was looking at her computer about me and so knew my personal details, her name was Cathy. I had said that the doctor had given me everything (ie prescription) and that's when she said - yes he has and you do need new knees.

Please don't be so accusatory particularly when you are wrong. Why would I lie, what would I achieve by lying.
