I know that this isnt the kind of place I should ask about knee surgery,but im just looking for some advice.
As some of you know ive had knee problems for sometime,well now its getting to a point where I am missing work about once a month because of my knee being swollen.
I cant climb up stairs without my knee cracking the whole time,and the pain gets so bad that ive thrown up because the pain is so bad.I dont really tell my parents or my gf how bad my knee really is because I dont want them to worry about me.
But now that it is affecting my work I am getting very worried.I work in a factory,very physical work.And I dont want to whine to my boss about my knee because then they put you on a "weight limit",and you can only do certain jobs and blah blah.
But im only 23 (going to be 24 in a month),but I cant even play 9 holes of golf without my knee swelling up and locking up.My doctor gave me some pills for my knee but even if I take those my knee still kills me.
He has taken xrays of my knee and found nothing wrong,and I dont know much about MRI's but people tell me thats what I need to get.
What should I do?
