Hi...I am new to the site and would very much like to post some questions, etc but don't see exactly where to click to post something. I went to the Help section and it says that to start a new thread to go the Board Index page...which page is this? Sorry, I'm sure this is probably quite easy and I am missing something right under my nose, but can someone help me? I had surgery 2 weeks ago and am dying to talk about some of what I am experiencing now! Thanks!

If you look at the Home page you will see several options. You can post in the General  Section called the Waiting Room or you can go to the Rehab section where there is also a General section.

Alternatively if you want specific advice from people who have undergone the same treatment then you can look in the Specialist Section where all the major knee treatments are listed.

Here are some useful links:

http://www.kneeguru.co.uk/KNEEtalk/index.php?board=7.0 General Board for those who have no idea where to post

http://www.kneeguru.co.uk/KNEEtalk/index.php?board=8.0 General Board for those who have had treatment but are still having some issues or want to share their experiences.

The Specialist area which lists all the major knee conditions by area is further down the Home Page and is worth scrolling through to see if your area is listed.

For those with Osteoarthritis and its associated problems including Total Knee Replacement (also known as Arthroplasty Surgery) there is a whole section dedicated to that particular area of knee problems.

Basically just read the descriptions by all the special areas on the Home Page. If you do not see them then click on the arrow on the left-hand side of the section title and the whole section will open up if it is not visible when you get to the Forum for the first few times.

For TKR problems, there is a very good community posting in this Board particularly:
http://www.kneeguru.co.uk/KNEEtalk/index.php?board=37.0

Just take a deep breath and ask away. Most people are posting from the patient's point of view and their advice is mainly anecdotal. There are a very few doctors and therapists who drop in but mostly the community is made up from patients.

I hope this helps

I fell two weeks ago and cracked my knee  cap had X-rays not broken completely, hospital sent me to a specialist, was put into a knee brace sent home with Rx. Have been in bed scared to move because I don't want to take any chance of bending my leg and re injuring it. Starting to feel weak.  How much should I be moving? Should I get a cast so my knee won't bend. Leg is still swollen and hurts, a little inflamed, applying ice 4 times a day.using a Walker to use bathroom only. Any advice? I am reading that some people are returning to wk after only a few weeks, Am I missing something? Returning to Dr on the 16 th. Concerned.  :-[Thanks :0)

Bone not healing
« Reply #84 on: October 18, 2013, 02:11:50 AM »
I am almost four months out from surgery and the bone is not healing. At 54 i thought the healing would take a while but there seems to be no progress... Any suggestions?

clinley: I can't  answer your question but you may have more luck if you post in a different section, 'General knee questions' for instance. And some more info maybe, like what surgery and which bone?

Hi
Googled - MCL Sprain/Tear not getting better 7-8 weeks and saw some interesting posts. So this is a nagging injury. I am a baseball player who has had this sore MCL part of the knee since late February. Tried to practice today and could not do anything. Right hander with a right knee injury. Can't throw off the plant, not swing the bat. Forget running. Been doing all the right things. Icing, wrapping, started exercising 2 weeks back, PT one week back. I don't feel it has gotten any better in 7-8 weeks. I limp less maybe. Should I be patient or do more? Did not have MRI with this. Ortho Doctor treated it as an MCL sprain.
