R knee popping in and out of joint
« on: June 12, 2007, 05:42:35 PM »
I stepped up to get into a SUV and my knee  popped out of joint :o.It took a few minutes before I could put weight on it.It happened about 6 more times over the weekend.I have had meniscal tears repaired on both knees.Went to ortho yesterday.The PA thought that I had aggrevated my OA and gave me a shot.I am already on 60mg prednisone daily for something else.He said that if I still have pain to come back in two weeks he'll order a MRI.
 Will aggrivated OA make my knee unstable ?I told him it didn't feel like QA pain but he seemed to think that was it.I'm going to start decreasing the prednisone dose this week and am concerned about how that will affect everything.And my knee is still popping out of joint.
 Do I need to call Ortho back now?I don't know if it could be damaging to my knee to wait the 2 weeks before I call back.
                                                                                                                                           Thanks

sorry to hear about your knee problems - i would see someone before the 2 weeks if possible - you may have done some damage inside that is not going to get any better if left alone...
1986 - recurrent dislocations of right patella began
1988 - Modified Hauser Procedure
1991 - dislocations started again
2005 to 2007 - 150 dislocations in 2 years - OUCH!!!
June 2007 - new OS, new physio
Oct 2007 - VMO woke up
Mar 2008 - big quads, still dislocating
Apr 2008 - next OS app

Thanks for all the good wishes.I go back to the orthopaedic tomorrow but got a peek at my mri report today.It says that there is ill-defintion of ACL fibers, especially when compared to previous exam,suggesting an ACL tear, possibly chronic.It also says that there's a new vertically oriented tear body and posterior horn medial meniscus.I also have some moderate effusion.
 Should be a fun visit tomorrow. ;D
