I am 8 months out from ACL reconstruction/ removal of torn meniscus in my left knee. I had a very good recovery, with a lot of progress very quickly. Over the past month, though, my knee has started swelling after even the slightest workout, and becomes sore and stiff. Over the past week, its progressed from more of a sore, dully, achey pain to a shooting pain in my knee when I try to go up stairs or take turns.
Has anyone experienced something like this? My dad mentioned trying a cortisone shot to see if that would help with the swelling and inflammation, but now that I have this shooting pain in my knee I'm a little more concerned. Is it possible that some part of my graft has come loose ( a screw or something, maybe?) ?
