Knees and ankles & the evil kidney--the mystery continues

Doctor #1 said torn meniscus. Nope.

Doctor #2 thought it was gout, jabbed a needle in there, extracted maybe 15cc's of gunk.

Lab results came back: nope. Gout's caused by uric acid, lab results didn't find crystals.

Meanwhile, my right knee's hot and there's fluid around the kneecap like before. I can't straighten my leg if I'm sitting. I can walk--well, hobble--for the time being.

Gotta get that damn kidney out; all the docs are saying that it and its "lesion" are causing all this trouble.
