| | Knee Manipulation with Anesthesia and Possible Lysis of Adhesions
Went back in after 2 months post op having issues with popping NEXT to the joint, like somethign was catching. I had worked up to 98* - 100* (depending on which tool they used, the small or big one ....to measure. lol) Now because of swelling and pain, I am down to 90* and the popping sensation is getting even worse. In any case, he did an MRI which came back normal (first one I had done back in may came back normal when I in fact had a large tear down to the bone) he says that PT has reached me as far as I am going to go without intervention. He offered to do an injection but I declined since last time I had one done, it did more harm than good in terms of pain and he agreed it was only a short term solution. He wants to bring me back into the OR and do a manual manipulation under general anesthesia and he says if he feels any resistance, he wants to go in and scope and clean it up, etc. I told him it isn't the pain, or the swelling I am concerned with, it is the popping sensation at the incsion point. I am hoping that he will feel some sort of resistance and find the need to scope it out to see what is going on. . . What can I expect with this all??
