My left foot got snagged in a loop of strapping off a box in the COMPACTOR area. I didn't realize it and went to walk away. My knee got jerked and I fell because my knee was screaming with pain. Went to the 24hrs clinic for crazy and was told I wrenched my knee. They put on a big full leg brace and said to see a orthopedic surgeon. Surgeon eventually did surgery trying to repair torn meniscus. Leg never felt good after that. We have tried everything. I went through another surgery, no good, tried snails, Narcotic pain meds,Percocet, vicodin, even morphine.no relief. I got injections every month of cortisone into the knee space. That worked great for awhile but then the relief was tapering off at the end of 8or9months. So back to square one. I can't take, ibuprofen, n-said and such because using all that medication so often lead to me being in stage3 renal disease. Help me.
