Question Knee Cap Deformity

I had knee surgery in 2003 at St. Vincents hospital here in Birmingham Alabama. I had a torn cartiledge and they removed my Lateral Colateral Ligament.

Question: Has anyone heard of your knee caps being rotated to the side?

Doc didn't really explain much other than when he released the ligament it went back to the correct spot. Six months of physical therapy was required to get full use of my knee again. I had to wear a new track in my kneecap. It was a very painful recovery.

I now am having problems with my other knee and you can actually see the difference between the two knee caps. I don't want surgery on the other one and the long recovery.

Thanks
