Hi, that's what it sounds like to me. My husband was actually just suffering the same thing and that's what the x-rays showed. The doc also took blood to make sure it wasn't gout. Also, a friend of mine was just diagnosed with arthritis in her knee and has almost completed her 8 sessions of physio. She's feeling much better. My husband and my friend both complained of not being able to bend it, but their pain was in different places (as also shown by their x-rays)
I hope he feels better soon.
Let us know the diagnosis and what treatment the doc is doing for him.
Best to you both,
It's all a matter of perspective!
my ol' man performs custodial work, today all of a sudden his left knee is swollen and is painful for him to fully bend in, he has not had any injury on it.
I had something similar..
My knee would be swolen for a month or two.. I noticed a great deal of stiffness.. sometimes my knee would pop while walking,standing.. I would fall and or start to trip alot... then one day I fell so hard and landed on the knee that was giving me the trouble and my employer sent me to the doctor. Test were ran and it was determined that I had a large benign tumor under my knee cap. The medical term for what my condition is, is PVNS (short) or Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis(long). There is a bunch of information out there to read which might be very helpful.
Does your father have any of the symptoms that I mentioned?
