    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    My pain started in 1985, tore up my knee and was in a fair amount of pain after words. What happened? I don't know, you would think your records, are your records. Try getting them, try getting them when something went wrong!
    2002 had foot surgery that went wrong, then severe knee pain and leg pain after TKR.
    The knee has been looked at, yet 9 years later, the foot still needs to be reviewed.
    Why do doctor's quickly say, your nuts,
    The past 9 years, my pain has been bearly controlled, leading to atrophy and nerve damage. Don't forget I must also be a drug addict. Try proving your not a drug addict, I thought my record made that clear, I'm still trying to get my leg fixed, and clear my name.

    Do doctor's read your chart's? no, rarely they do, if they do they just read the first 2 lines. Remember Doctor's aren't paid for getting you well, but by the times they see you.
    Pain Management does what? Write scripts, they know less than your GP .
