A year ago I landed awkwardly on my knee and badly hurt it. Got an MRI in March and showed my knee is fine only a bit of bruised bone. My problem is I know for a fact I have a loose piece of cartilage or bone floating around in my knee so I had to tell my doctor, going to see an orthopaedic this month. I know I'll need keyhole surgery but I can't stand the thought of having to wait a year plus to carry on with my application. Is it worth shelling out 3 grand for private keyhole? I'm thinking about doing it but I can see myself still having problems with capita about it so could be waiting ages anyway. What would you do?
