- United States
Unfortunately I think a lot of the problem in the US is the whole medical community running away from the opeiod crisis in the country. In our sue for anything culture they have become afraid to treat those of us in serious pain because they are afraid of being sued.I certainly wish each one of us could get some honest answers about our individual knees. It truly seems as if the surgeons (at least here in the US) do the surgery but then refer you to a pain management specialist. I was / am uncertain how a pain management physician works. The one I saw seemed ambivalent if he ever saw me again or not. Plus he referred me back to the knee surgeon. I fail to see how that is helpful. Clearly I still don't understand their role in our knee recovery.
