In pain 24 hours a day. Need a knee replacement. Had arthroscopic surgery in December 2015 and no improvement. Loss eye sight in left eye after surgery and had a gas bubble behind my eye to hold the reattached retina in place until it healed, about 2 months. Could not have any physical therapy due to gas bubble behind eye.
