Sciatic Pain???
« on: January 19, 2008, 02:42:55 AM »
Hi...Im any of you have sciatic pain that you have picked up along the way after your knee injury?  I had a LR last year and have had a poor recovery process. My quads are week, I have some peroneal nerve issues...and lots of scar tissue.  Getting this all fixed on Feb 8th...I hope.........One thing I dont really know about is if my sciatic pain will ever resolve.   All my docs and PT seem to think it is because Im walking funny...and that it should get better afterwards.  It is sometimes hard to say that the sciatic is not WORSE than the knee is worse...The knee is weak, the sciatic is pain.

Anyone with any tips or success with their sciatic getting better?

LR 11/2006
LR Reconstruction scheduled 2/08
