4 months ago I had a torn medial miniscus repaired.
I have had a lazy physio and as a result ,I have over worked certain muscles and some muscle have shut off and new physio said I have to have hydro therapy and lots of work to bring me backto walking properly.
I walk with a stiff knee and cant bed it for the life of me when I walk .
I can bend it when I lay down or sit . I am still tender on the side I had miniscus repaired so my question so far is ,why is it that I can bend knee when walking but can bend it when I sit or lay down,I also wake up with the knee being painful and as soon as I repositon it it eases up a lot .Why the tenderness after 4 moths still.
My questions are on my right knee too.
I feel like I have miniscus trouble as well in that knee ,I feel a ot of pain when I press on the joint line on both sides of my knee cap.
I feel some resistance in my knee ,grabbing , catching feelings on the medial side of my knee and sometimes a bit on the laterial side at times ,it is sore on the laterial side , sometimes feel sharp almost burning stabbing pains on one or both sides then it goes away.
If I am off my knee it feels better and by the end of the day it is sore .
I can hear and feel a pop and clicking in my knee on medial side ,but there has been times I cant tell which side the click came from.When I pivot on my knee i can feel a grabbing catching feeling on the inside of knee and sometimes it feels like it radiates to the outside of my knee.
If I keep it bent too long it gets achy then I straighten it and it feels better..
The doct or has done a mcmurry test and says he cant tell yet if it is a torn miniscus. Does the mcmurry test always give the doctor the pop or click feeling in the knee to know it is cartilage that is torn..
I have a variety of feeling which to me feels like something is torn or catching in my knee. It feels alot like the forst time but some different feelings that I didnt have first time with left knee.
I have never had a arthritis problems with my right knee before this started.
In my job I do have to get on my knee every night on concrete to sound gasoline tanks , I do know that I have come down hard on my rigth knee a few times so I dont know If I have damaged it and now it is gettin to the stage where it is letting me know it now.
I am off from work now and have a referal to see the ortho doctor here in a cuple of weeks .
If nybody could give me some advice or tell me what they have gone thru if it is what I described I would be so happy.
