dank.sinatra Posted November 4, 2015 Share Posted November 4, 2015 So I decided to shell out the cash for a private MRI after about ten months of tolerating awful knee pain. Very glad I did as it confirmed what I was pretty sure to be a torn meniscus. However I don't have the money to pay for a private surgery.Was wondering if anyone out there has been themselves or knows anyone who has been through this process via public health care? My GP estimated around 2-4 months just for a freaking call back from the surgeon to schedule an appointment likely many more months down the road.Does anyone know the wait time for surgery? Any tips on expediting the process? Any advice on recovery/what to expect after? The estimated cost of private surgery? Will my knee ever feel the same as it did pre-injury?It's times like this I'm insanely jealous of the medical treatment of professional athletes.... shoulda gone pro man.Also sorry for a question that could seemingly be researched on its own, but it was surprisingly impossible to find this info through google. Thanks for any advice! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
