?pain getting worse?
« on: February 12, 2007, 12:06:13 AM »
hi everyone.....recently i went to the doctor and he told me i have a bone bruise on my tibial plateau a subluxing kneecap and pateller tendinitis. he told me to stop sports and rest it for awhile.....i rested for about a month and nothing was feeling any beter if ne thing worse, because i was gettin 5 times as many sharp pains in the area ofthe bone bruise.  now i am getttin more sharp pains than ever........i was just wondering if anyone would have any suggestions for the pain and y resting isnt helping it. i have no idea y the pain is getting worse, so if anyone has suggstions etc. id realy appreciate it.

Hi Jen

I would seek out advice from an OS. You own doctor only knows so much about these things and sometimes thats just not enough, you need the advice from a professional orthopaedic consultant. If it's not getting better only worse then somethink needs to be done, it's best not to leave these things. Until you can get that arranged keep resting it, using ice and pain meds when needed.

Hope all gets sorted
