I'm in the UK. Unfortunately our hospital is overstretched in its resources, and doctors will on average, give you 5-10 minutes MAX. The guy has since referred me to have another MRI on the legs. It took me approx 2 years to get the first lot of MRIs! Hopefully this will be quicker.
I'll take your caveat regarding MRIs and won't run away with any conclusions. Perhaps get a 4th opinion? hehe.
He did state that if symptoms don't improve and therapy doesn't work, then an arthroscopy might be in order.
Thanks for your reply though.
