Bursitis 1 week after surgery ..what to do
« on: December 13, 2007, 01:13:11 AM »
Hi there,
 Had surgery dec 3rd. 4 days ago I developed some inflammation in the knee on the lateral anterior side. Looked like a cyst. Next day PT and te doc looked at it and said its inflammation of the Bursa. We have been icing it and resting it and doing light ROM activites but it seems to flare up everyime I do wallslides etc (an flexion). Today while standing upright with almost no weight on it I started to feel burning pain. PT thinks its not infected ..just a bursa inflamation ...but these days are critical to regain ROM I am concerned as to what to do. Anybody been through this before or have any good advice please? Thanks.

I would call the OS for more help. At least that doesn't hurt to do.
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.
