Knee pain

Jun 17, 2016 6:05 PM

I have been having knee pain for just over 6 years now. I first injured it and the bruising was very bad, this came from a girl with football boots on using her studs and standing on me, when this happened I tried to twist and get away but it seem to have done more damage

I had a mri... Extra... And then I got sent for a op, they repaired my cartilage damage, but I am still getting swelling, and a lot of pain at night and now during the day :(, even when walking up stairs
I have since then also had sports massage and to be told about my lymph nodes blocked in the back of my knee which I know this can course swelling, but also I have a lot of soft tissue damage on my knee

I am just feeling like a yoyo being passed from one to another and I want to just known what wrong

I just wondering if anyone has got any help they can offer if this has happened to you,

Time to find a new doctor and have it checked out again I think. 6 years is awhile and there might be some degeneration or arthritis going on. It were me I would head for a doctor that works on footy athletes because they seem to recover fantastically well after their surgery 😀 best of luck

That the thing I did see a new doc and he sent me back to the surgeon again, as he not very happy with it all.
Over the past 6 years I have been trying to strengthen my knee myself, but something is making it very unhappy.

And thank you :)

Yup, I've continually referred to other doctors and specialists for years. My knee pain improved after I got a new PT who told me to strengthen my gluts. Good luck!!!

I know your pain. I had years of knee pain - acl, medial meniscus, cartilage, patella femoral syndrome, patellar tendinitis, subluxation. It's a very unstable joint. I highly recommend taping it so that you can continue to strengthen without flaring up. Have you already been taping?

What most people fail to understand is of course an athlete heals fast. They are in tip top shape exercising 6+ hours a day everyday, proper weight, awesome diet and do not have other health issues. Who her does that. Plus much of the time the physical therapy they have is several hours a day and an average person cannot do that because they were not ever that active before in their life. Not saying that you fall into the catagory. Kinda like going to get a new hair cut with a picture of a celebrity and you want to look like them with just a hair cut when you really look like The Hunchback of Notre Dom. It is all relative.

I would go see a new sports orthopedic surgeon. It's likely that after 6 years you have multiple issues going on, including possible scar tissue. Just tell that doctor up front that no one has been able to help you regain even half your abilities and you'd like a new set of eyes and mind working with you. And if it is a lymph node involved you may need a specialist for that. Hugs & prayers you find someone who will help you improve! 🙂💕🙏🌼

Thank you, well I have had an mri and I have someone new this time, he says he has a few new things that he thinks it could be, so hopefully I will find out what it is 😀
