Semimembranosus Tendon/Meniscus
« on: September 13, 2002, 03:35:31 PM »
Hello All,

Has anyone had any experience with severe inflammation of their semimembranosus tendon.  It is the tendon the runs along side the medial joint line and inserts at the medial meniscus.  I am facing a looming surgery and my OS is talking about cutting the tendon and doing a partial meniscectomy in hopes that one of them will cure my pain.  If anyone has information about these conditions or procedures I would appreciate your help.

Hey there, I know you made this post 3 years ago, but I'm wondering how your surgery went, and what your symptoms were beforehand.  I've been dealing with a lot of pain in the semimembranosus area which makes it hard to sit for long periods of time.  It also swells up a lot, and I'm on hardcore anti-inflammatories which don't really help.
Any information would be appreciated :)
Current tally:
7 diagnoses (all wrong!)
8 doctors
4 knee braces
3 rounds of PT
2 cortisone shots
2 MRIs
1 bone scan
1 surgery
countless X-rays
No solution!
