I was passing medication to the patient one day, the patient hit me on my bilateral chest and was backing away and my left knee was swollen and painful. I had Xray and showed I tore up my meniscus and had surgery in 2011. It was better for a while and got worse thend in March 2014 had total knee replacement. It was getting better then pain and stiff got worse. Had MRI and showed implant moved so had revision in April 2016. I am still doing therapy but still limping and still in pain and haven't gone back to work yet. I don't know what to do next.
