Popping sensation
« on: August 22, 2003, 07:11:07 AM »
Well, I can finally bend my knee almost all the way now. It feels tight just past 90 degrees, but it will go farther. I've noticed that there's a popping sensation at the top of the kneecap when I bend and raise though (going up stairs, etc). Is this just a normal thing due to the post-op swelling (I'm still mildly swollen from knee to ankle)? Odd thing is, I put my stabilizer on earlier for kicks, and couldn't mimic the popping with it. My OS says I shouldn't need the brace, but I told him I'm falling short on confidence in the knee. Any ideas?

Arthroscopy 8/8/03 - partial meniscectomy (x2), chondroplasty, lateral release (failed). 1/04 - dx with "miserable alignment". 11/04 - dx patella baja.
