I have some very serious help I need 2 knee replacements two hip replacements in my rotator cuff has a tear in it. yes I am overweight but that is because I cannot do much physical activity due to my knees. all this doctor offered was lose weight and then you can get your surgery. that would be great if I can move he thought I should look into the bypass surgery and I tried to tell him my problem is I don't eat enough and what I do eat my body works because it thinks I am starving it. I cannot stand for more than two maybe three minutes for trying to cook is very difficult I have to do the most simplest things. I told him I've seen a few different nutritionist I've had them visit me at home and they have all agreed with me. he said to me you have also seen other orthopedic surgeons and I said yes and I have gone to physical therapy and just when I started to get good I threw off quite a few blood clots many blood clots which set me back at least 2 years before I can have any kind of surgery. my heart because of all the blood clots was enlarged and that had to be taken care of first. so that was a really big setback, he never even offered hey why don't we try and injection the try to get you to physical therapy. in my opinion I waited well over two hours he ordered more x-rays after I had already had X-rays done and MRIS he saw me for less than 10 minutes and probably build you guys hundreds of dollars because he had to even take more X-rays I feel it was a complete waste of my time and to be honest he gave me no hope I was very disappointed.
