Title: thigh and knee pain with pressure and swelling
Post by: diamondeve on November 15, 2008, 02:12:00 PM
I had arthroscopic knee surgery for medial meniscus tear and chondroplasty 4 weeks ago. I was sent back to work with restrictions of no squatting,kneeling or climbing. I followed them to a tee. I also do pt 3 times a week . Except now I started haaving alot of swelling in knee and lower thigh which feels like enormous pressure. Then the pain under kneecap and where menicus tear was hurts real bad . In the middle of my thigh I have a real bad pain. I do alot of walking and standing for 8 hours a day at my job. None of this reall gets bad till after an hour at work. I do have an ortho but don't want to call him yet because this was work injury related. Anyone else ever have this problem. If so what was it and did it ever get resolved.
