Hello folks, first time posting on here, but I've been sniffing around for a while
I had a bucket tear on the inside of my left knee about 2 years ago, and in my infinite wisdom (and a useless doctor) didn't worry about the occaisional pain until it got to the point where I could hardly walk (January this year).
Never had any locking of the knee, just occaisional swelling and a lack of ROM. I was able to kneel, but I would pay dearly for it later on.
So, skip to June this year - Bupa operation later to tidy up the tear. It's now November, and I still cannot kneel down completely, although I have 95-odd% ROM. If I do attempt to kneel, my left leg cramps, and I can only just get past a 45 degree angle (does that make sense?). It feels as though the knee has something stopping it going any further.
Whilst attempting to kneel I also get pretty some pretty intense pain at the back of the knee, at the top of the calf muscle..
Can anyone help/suggest anything?
