There are different strengths of oral medications. If something doesn’t work, it may not be strong enough. It should have been reviewed. Different medication or even combination of medication should be prescribed if the ones she was using were not working for her. She is not the only elite athlete having a surgery, but we never hear other elite athletes being in such agony after their surgeries. So it makes me think that the problem isn’t the fact that she can’t use them because it might be considered as doping; it seems to me that from some reason it wasn’t managed well by the doctors and that’s very sad! She doesn’t deserve this.She said oral meds don't help. Perhaps she tried and it didn't work. PErhaps the care isn't as awesome as what you have in U.K. There is no telling from the quick quotes.
