Anyone ideas on what is wrong?
« on: August 07, 2008, 05:34:47 PM »
Hi all.
I will try to make this as brief as possible. About 4 weeks ago I was moving a box of books I do not know if it was the way my foot was or what But All of a sudden  My knee popped loud. I about hit the floor. But i managed to hobble over to couch. Now For the 1st Week i tried to nurse it myself. Doing the whole RICE routine. I could pressure on that leg but very little. By the time i went to my OS about a week and a half from intial injury i couldn't walk at all on that leg and i needed to keep "pressure" around my kneecap. So i wrapped ace banadge around it and then put a small stretchy sleeve over it. I went to see my OS. He said that my Joint implant looked fine and it was probably a piece of scar tissue that popped.He put me in a leg immbolizer and told to keep using my crutches until i could bear weight. Ok.
Now here is the odd thing i can bend my knee no problem. But i Still cannot bear any weight at all on that leg. When i am laying down i do take the immobolizer off so my leg can breathe but on for a few because then  my knee starts thobbing horribly from not having "pressure" around my kneecap.
Anyone have ideas?
