I have managed to chip off a small piece of bone in the front of my tibia, under my knee cap and it's basically causing swelling & stiffness, and a little pain. We drained it once, and shot it up with cortisone, that lasted for a few days, then it swelled back up again. I may have aggravated it by over doing some bending exercises, my bad.
My Orthopedist want to go in and "sand it down". This sounds simple enough, but will it really do the trick, and give me my mobility back?
I just wonder if I just lay off the bending, kneeling, etc, might it just mellow out on it's own?
I'm very frustrated with it, as I'm not used to being unable to do the bending that my life requires, as I do a bit of dancing. That is how I got the injury in the first place, I slipped in a rehearsal, and smack down right on the front of the knee.
