Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
Of course the pain is horrible, you may consult a pain specialist, in the meanwhile.
He may prescribe, injections of vitamins of B1,6,and 12 for 10 consecutive days, pain killers, and antibiotic, to prevent infection, till the arthroscopy is done .
Arthroscopy is is a surgery involving the joint, may take a week for recovery, and a rest for few days.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. thank you.
