Title: patella pain
Post by: mkcsmartin on December 22, 2008, 03:38:05 PM
Hi. I am 4 and 1/2 months post patella acl recon.
Generally my feeling is it went well. however, i do get a dull pain when i walk (which has improved over time)
which is in the same area as acute pain when i squat or do heavy leg press.  I also notice it when i straighten the leg from bent.
I allways hoped this would go away and this was the impression that the physio gave me with some work.
I have not been religoius in my PT but i have done a reasonable amount.

can anyone give my advice as to whether i can expect this to go away / subside over time.
I treadmill for 30 minutes 3 times per week and do gym also. I have noticed that it can be worse after i have worked the knee hard with presses etc. I just worry that it should hurt less by this stage..

any advice, gladly accepted..

kind regards
