noisy knee
« on: June 26, 2005, 04:02:32 PM »
Hi all, I have posted on her before,I had a car accident in 03 and amongst other injuries my left patella was shattered(compond fracture) the sin was torn where the bone came through, the scar is not very pretty and quite big as it was trauma surgery, not one of those nice thin silver straight scars. Anyway they wired it back together, lots of physio, but June last year had alot of pain, so they removed metalwork, did lateral release and medial plication, the last two years are abit of a blur, anyway now I'm relatively pain free for the first time in ages, but now the knee is really noisy when i bend down or bring my knee towards me it does like two loud cracks like bones braking.  When I was in pain before the op it was not noisy like that, do you think it is just wear and tear, will exercise help? I have been abit lapse with exercise since the pain eased.  I'd appreciate any help, oh and thanks to shade for her support in an earlier post Claire xx
