Looking for help!
« on: January 29, 2007, 09:04:12 PM »
Hello! Hope all is well!  :D

I'm going to the OS next week after I get an MRI this week.  I have been suffering with pain on the left knee for three months now.  The pain is much worse.  It hurts when I sit, sharp pain up and down the leg.  I have extreme swelling under and on top of the knee cap.  I also have sharp pain in the knee cap, my knee is constantly stiff.  I can no longer bed the knee, squat etc. If I do bend my knee, it's difficult to get up and there is extreme pain in and around it.

I had meniscus surgery on my right knee about 3 years ago and never experience pain like this.  I'm not sure if it's going to be another meniscus or not.

Any thoughts on this?  Has anyone experience something like this?

sounds like some type of tear.

Unfortunately, I've had a nightmare with my doctor and haven't been able to get an MRI before seeing the OS.  Tomorrow I will go see the OS and he will tell me I need an MRI.

Thanks for your responses, I'll let you know how it goes.
