metal artifact in knee following mri
« on: March 08, 2009, 10:39:40 PM »
Hi All

I have had 3 surgerys lateral release,arthroscopy and deridement of patella tendon still having pain down medial side of knee. Last mri showed a fragment of metal in the patella tendon dr unsure how it got there but said it could of come off the arthroscpe when i had surgery 3 years ago. i HAVE TENDONITUS OTHER STRUCTURES GOOD.
Surgeon is not concerned that this metal is in my knee should i be? I am in pain i am under a chiropractor who has given me foot insoles which do help. I have been offered a Duralone injection but last time he tried to inject the registrar hit my bone and tendon i could not walk for 3 days .Dont know what to do now any ideas ???

             My father is a doctor but I am not with him right now. I am working now in my company. And I am too far from my family. I having some business trip so I think I will tell this to my father when I go home. When I still remember this thing.
