I had the same symptoms after I dislocated my knee. I have a knee replacement that dislocated. I had damage to my posterolateral structures and my PCL. My PCL damage showed up as hyperextension and the posterolateral damage as lateral shfting. I just had surgery to repair. I had a posterolateral reconstruction. Since I have a TKR , my femoral implant was replaced with a PCL sacrificing component. I also had to have a much larger spacer from the stretching. Those last two procedures wouldn't pertain to you since you do not have a TKR, but it sounds like you need to be seen by a knee doc to check out all your lateral, posterolateral ligaments and PCL. You might try posting down further in the collateral and cruciate sections to get more replies.
