I know there are a bunch of fellow transplant recipients out there so I though I'd just start a new thread.
I am 1.5 months post op of a medial meniscus transplant and micro frature on the lateral side. My PT thinks its normal, and I have a doc appt next week, but how much pain is to be expected? I have had a good amount pain in the back of the knee of the medial side when I walk, or just move it in a certain way. Im sure I am just paranoid- I have so much invested in this knee! But it does worry me that I have had this pain in the same exact spot for a while now, and it happens to be on the same side as the transplant. I mentioned it to the doc a couple weeks ago and he didn't see to concerned about it.
After previous surgeries my knee was sore, and pain was not localized- but not now. So is it common to have this kind of pain post op from a meniscus transplant? and for so long?
Oh ya, How Long will it suck to sleep!?!?!?
Thanks for any advice
