Got injured at work. My knee was swollen the size of a basketball and black and blue. I couldn’t walk on my leg. I begged the doctor to take an x-ray, as it felt broken. She was VERY dismissive and told me the swelling would go down and it was not a big deal.
A year later, after the pain barely subsided (the swelling did go down, most of the time, but would come back now and then), oh gee, a different doctor at a different facility takes x-rays and guess what? It was broken in the shin (hairline fracture) and my knee was dislocated.
Without having been treated for those injuries I now have permanent damage and arthritis in that knee.Because this was a Workers Comp claim, I was unable to have them re-open the case since I waited too long (due to the doctors bad advice at the St. Francis Health Center at AT&T Park) and basically I am screwed.
Thanks a lot, St. Francis Health Center! Hopefully you treat the Giants better than you treated me.
