Post by: del on June 20, 2007, 05:30:21 PM
hi,i dont know to much about scar tissue perhaps you could advise me,but i had a knee op 2 1/2 months ago ive done everthing by the book in regards to resting,stretching isometric exercises the knee felt great until a couple of days ago when it became stiff and started clicking alot and making alot of noises,i had  suttering trimming and staples its not my first op,the knee isnt locking anymore which is good,so just wondering if this could be scar tissue from arthroscopy perphaps,what kind of symptoms do you get?
thanks

Could you be more specific on what you exactly was done during the arthroscopy.

when I had scar tissue build up it didn't hurt, I just couldnt move my knee.  The scarring was keeping the knee from bending because of where it sat.  I was so frustrated because I didn't hurt but couldn't move.

You need to talk with your OS about your current problems.  Although it could be scar tissue, it sounds more like further mensical degeneration.

It doesn't sound like scar tissue to me, but only your OS will know for sure.  I have scar tissue in my knee and it causes some pain and it makes me have limited ROM.  You should go get it checked out to see if maybe the meniscus is damaged again.
