Knee Injury, Gout, Torn Ligaments
(Abe from Los Angeles, see RS #53 10-13-01) – Has been on disability for a few years. In September of 2000, he stepped off a curb and his knee snapped. He was in such pain that he went to his Kaiser doctor, who drew fluid out of his knee and diagnosed him with gout. Another doctor took an MRI of his knee and found that he had torn ligaments in both of his knees. He was prescribed drugs, which only upset his stomach. When he came to see Dr. Tong six weeks ago, he could hardly move. After the first treatment with Dr. Tong, he had no pain in his knees and could stand up from a sitting position without using his hands. Now that his pain is gone, he can exercise and is starting to lose weight. He is also sleeping better.
