He Cel,

I have some sleepless night folloing my arthroscopy does not happen every night though depends what I've been doing during the day.  I just put it down to doing to much, the physio says my painkillers may need looking at if it continues.  Going to the docs today so will ask.  Will let you know what they say.

Hi Cel-
Do you think you have arthritis now?  Could that be the problem?  I know arthritis set in very fast after my last surgery.  My knee sometimes aches at night the worst but not every night.  Has anyone told you that you have arthritis?

thanks chook

hope your knee stops throbbing soon.  Im now 13 weeks post op and the trobbing has eased off a bit, thank god!  I thought I was turning into a ZOMBIE!!! Maybe it is just the time when we become more active in our daily activities and with our PT????  Im at the point now where I have pain at the back of my knee/leg, it is sh*tting me!  I think it is how Im walking.  Maybe it is a muscle building up again, have u got one skinny leg and one normal??  Its funny!  What did your dr say?

My knee is hyper sensitive at night.  7 week post op ACL allograft.  My knee also gets extremely hot at night.  Anyone else having this issue?  Know why?
