I have completely torn my ACL.
Next on the list is to get x-rays because the specialist my doc is sending me to likes to have them.
Then, I wait. The specialist will call my doc’s office and they will call me to set up an appointment. Apparently specialists do not like patients to call their office directly. Why would they? I mean, it’s only my knee and my time that I need to schedule.
So basically, now I wait. Orthopaedic specialists have the longest wait time in our system. I have no idea at this point how long it will take to get an appointment, let alone surgery time.
I’m glad that I know, and paying for the MRI was definitely worth it to get things moving along. But I’m depressed that it turned out to be the worst it could be.
