Outragous Pain
BForr posted:

I am 15 years post ACL repair. I tore my ACL and fractured my knee in three places while in the Marine Corps. The surgeon at Bethesda Naval Hospital did a great job repairing the ACL. However 15 years later I deal with constant pain, swelling, my knee buckles and gives out on me. I am a current patient with the VA, I went to the doctor there with the symptoms, he ordered x-rays, MRI and did a complete (so he says) exam on my knee only to say there is nothing wrong. What should I do now? I can not deal with the pain much longer. On a pain scale of 1-10 it is a constant 7 or 8 and shoots to a 10 plus at least 5 times a day.

See another doctor if you can. I know it's hard if you're going to the VA but you don't have that much pain and have nothing wrong. Gather all your records, x-rays and MRIs and take them somewhere else.

Thanks for your service to our country.
BForr replied to _swank_'s response:
Swank, I would go see another doctor, but I have no insurance and I can not afford the bill. I have been fighting with the VA for well over 2 years about this. I understand that there are service members coming home with far worse injuries then I have, missing limb etc, but it is ridiculous when 2 other Orthopedic doctors say yes there is a problem and you need surgery and send me to the surgical specialist and he say " there is nothing wrong. It is all in your head, you need to see Psych doctor to get past it." I about cleaned his clock when he told me that. Then they sent me over to get fitted for a special knee brace and the guy there says he can't do anything and gives me a brace that doesn't fit right and causes more pain. I deal with the pain everyday and my family suffers right along with me since I can not get involved in some of the things we like to do.
