I know that being without a medical aid really poses problems and the prospect of having to go to the local Provincial Hospital daunting, but I do think an orthopaedic surgeon needs to have a look at that knee. Maybe you can phone a few orthopaedic surgeons and find out what their rates are. Otherwise you can make an appointment at your local Provincial Hospital at the orthopaedic department. Unfortunately the waiting lists for procedures can be very long, but it is worth a try. Hope you get assistance somewhere.
