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.
