    An_248317 posted:
    I had my Total Left Knee Surgery on June 18, 2012. My spinal block
    didnt work so he went on with the surgery and I felt all the pain when i come to. Her it is October and my knee is giving me alot of problems I cant hardly do anything and it hurts still Im back on my walker cause of my leg. I toldmy dr abou my pain and he brushed it off. But I didnt get much apin meds I had to practically beg for it. I laid there and hurt for hours. Now im afraid I may have to go back thru the surgery again ive got to go to another doctor im not going to the same one. He wont listen to me. Come to find out some otherws have the same pain and he dismissed theirs to. So maybe ill find out why I cant put any weight on my left knee without iot hurting. I cant cook are anything
