That doesn't sound good at all. I am sure you will be fighting for a long time with Workmen's Comp. They really don't want to give in if they can help it. It really is a shame because things can get worse if the tears don't heal. You could end up with surgery to repair it and then be off for a longer period of time. My DH went through this several times, so you have may sympathy and support.

I went back to work on restrictions. I am waiting on wokers comp to approve for me to see a specialist. I have a feeling since I have gone back to work that I may be waiting for a long time or if they will approve for me to go. I go back to the regualer doctor next Tuesday.
There is a baker cycst filled with fluid at the back of the knee and tears in the menisculs (spelling?) tissue. I have heard that sometimes it will heal itself if the tears aren't too bad. It still has lots of inflamation in it. I don't feel bad but I do get tired.
Car wreck last Wednesday. Tami (admin secretary) and I were headed to a conferance with an 83 year old pulled out in front of us. I was driving and couldn't stop. Totalled the fleet vehicle and my knees went into the dash. The right one is banged up pretty good. Back to the doctor tomorrow for a MRI and then see where I will go from there. It is bruised and hurts and I am to stay off of it for now.
Extremely aggravating I hate to stay still.
