Help please
« on: January 16, 2005, 09:50:15 AM »
I am new to the board. I fell in October and felt my leg twist. When the pain settled down, it was my left knee which was sore, stiff and pain down left side. I was never really told what was wrong, the dr suggested cartilage trouble and prescribed anti inflammatories. This was just clearing up two months later (December 2004) when I went to sit down one day and felt my right leg twist. I could not put foot on ground after that and dr diagnosed damaged ligament  and prescribed again anti inflammatories, parecetamol and using a novasonic device.
If I keep knee rested I have little problem now, except pain, but immediately I try to walk outside the whole thing feels as bad as ever. What should I do, keep resting knee or try to excercise. How long should ligament trouble take to clear up?

Hey !!

Did you see an ortopeadic surgeon specialized on knees ? If not you should consider to see one.
What did the doc say about your ligament ? Is anyone of the completely teared or stretched or what ?
Please give us more info if you have.
Otherwiese I would definately try see a OS.
