Old surgery pain - Help!!
« on: February 24, 2007, 06:03:44 AM »
About 15 years ago I had my left lateral meniscus of my left knee removed and the bone shaved smooth. Things have been ok until about a month ago. I have experienced sharp pain in the region of the surgery and the knee swells with a tightness's of the mussel of the lower thigh.  Can anyone take a shot at what is causing the recent onset of symptoms.  I would appreciate any help.

thanks

There can be a degenerative tear now after all years since surgery..do you have any swelling, catching sensations, locking...or have you started with something new..like sports or changed shoes or different work recently ?
Surgery 6 times left knee torn meniscus, RSDS,chondromalacia, nervdamage cause constant nervpain,chronic inflamm.
Spinaldamage wheeler 100%.
Right knee damaged aug-06, use brace surgery 4/9-07.LCL tear.
