I had knee surgery in January. Partial meniscectomy of my medial meniscus on left side.
After surgery I noticed that I had no feeling on the left outside part of my knee on the medial side. The entry wounds were not as small as from my first surgery on my right knee.
I still have no feeling on the side of my knee at all! When I asked my doctor about it he said he cut the nerve and it was standard.
It was not the case on my right knee and I can't find anything regarding it online except that it's possibly a mistake made during surgery.
The only relief I've gotten from the surgery was the knee stopped catching but still pops.
Done PT and plenty of good exercise but my nerves have gotten me to the point of not being able to be in one position for more than an hour or 2. Taking Gabbapentin now and still in pain.
IT band syndrome has developed in my left leg and nerve pain radiaiting from my genitfemoral nerve, to my hip at the point of my IT band and numbness down my entire leg.
When I asked my doctor prior to surgery if I needed a lateral release because it was tight due to my injury he said no. The doctor was very vague after surgery and wouldn't discuss anything. Just said everything looks great and continue to do PT. Is there a problem that you see here? I've heard doctors are vague about surgery when something goes wrong.
This is all work related and they're giving the usual bureaucratic BS so I'm seeing an attorney on Wednesday and I would like to know some facts before hand.
