Orthroscopic knee surgery and recovery
I had orthroscopic knee surgery 2 1/2 weeks ago. My recovery has been going well. I can bend my knee and walk without the aid of crutches or my cane. Yesterday, I stood up and my knee popped and pain shot up my leg. As I began to walk, my knee locked in place and I had to shake it loose. I was unable to put weight on the knee. I went to the doctor today and he said that the pain and locking was caused by bursitis and prescribe an anti-inflammatory drug. Has anyone else experienced knee locking after surgery? I thought knee lock occurred when the meniscus was torn, but mine was repaired during surgery. He has also ordered physical therapy. I was previously doing my own therapy at home, however, I did not regain full extension of the leg. I am afraid of going to physical therapy with this knee locking in place. Has anyone else had any of these experiences?
