Anyway, I had my LR 6 months ago but I still have some pain, especially on rainy days and when i;ve been sitting or standing for a long period of time.. Any advice.. I've just been taking Advil.. Thnaks

Brooke,

Are you still doing your exercises?  Stretching?  The reason I ask is because it is important you still do them.  Any time you have surgery on any joint, your chances for arthritis increase, so it may be possible that you have a little bit of arthritis in your knee.  Or, your lateral release may not have corrected your knee- you might want to make an appointment with your doctor to check up on it.  As for sitting for long periods of time (with your knee bent) it is normal for it to ache.  Get up, stretch, and walk around a bit.  Do you have swelling?  Also, make sure you ice it after doing any strenuous activity.  Many hugs!

This is my first time on here, so I don't know where or how to post  a question so I hope this works.  My fiance is 38 years old and own's a painting company and he is kneeling alot.  Just within the past month he has aquired fluid on the top of his kneecap. The fluid has popped once and the swelling went down, well when the fluid went away we felt a hard small piece of something on the top of his knee cap.  Then he did something to it again and now the fluid is back.  He went to the doctor and they took x-rays and told him that they don't see anything wrong except for the fluid that he has on the top of his kneecap.  My fiance says that when the fluid builds up in his knee, his knee feels numb.  It is hurting badly.  We have tried ice and heat and elevation. None of them have helped.  What can we do?  What should we do?  Do you have an idea of what it could be?  I thought maybe it would be Prepatellar bursitis, but I'm not sure.  Please give me some advice.  We would appriciate it more than you know.  
                              Thank You for your time.
