Best thing to us is ICE. Ya see i ran into troubles with my family doctor we thought meniscus until i got my mri report and it said i had fluid in my knee joint lateral patella tracking narrowing of some bone and fanning of the proximal insertion of the PCL STILL dont know what the HECK that means! But oh well. My first ortho WORST place to go over. I was in terrible pain but he literally did NOT seem to care. It was like oh well there's nothing wrong here but weak muscles. Which when he told me this was like jaw to the ground moment like you can NOT tell me i have ALL this pain for weak muscles. My leg muscle is insane so i didn't understand NOR would i agree to what was telling me and i had good right to not listen cause look where i am now!
a better place!
Its fixable! the longer its out of where it should be the harder it is to put back. Meaning physio therapy will most likely fail if its been out for a long time. Meaning surgery would most likely fix it. I do believe it will fix my right knee because it hasn't had a chance to get to where my left knee is. My surgeon said my problem is genetic. So it wouldn't have corrected through physio. So my right knee will continue to become exactly what my left was doing.
Between genetics and sports i killed them!
But DONT think you won't get relief. I read on hear before someone had it before and THEY were sooo glad it fixed there problem. But then something happened to them but i don't believe it had to do with the knee when they had troubles again.
Im learning i kind of have to be like alright! Im going to get better, physio two times a week you'll get there me, because im doubtful about my left knee just because of where it was before i had surgery. But don't be!!!
really its not worth worrying about! they can only figure how much of a %chance you have of full recover they can't tell you in stone that oh this wont work unless its tried. You have to believe your going to recover and your going to get better!
I focus on maybe one day being able to play soccer without pain and able to run without my knees giving out!! They can fix it and don't doubt it from where i was before surgery to wear i am now, i have less pain! BY far less pain. my knee feels SO much better compared to my right, it LOOKS normal now and i only have the popping for a certain thing i do in physio that will aggrivate it, but honestly i can't complain its my mind that keeps making me feel discouraged like this is a waste of time but i dont know that, you have a greater chance of recover than not recovering!
SO all i can say is
think positively that one day you'll be pain free and not missing those days of the pain and the miserable day!
