IM Rod Giving Problems
« on: January 17, 2010, 08:32:32 PM »
Back in 2001 I had a bad car wreck, I broke my right femure resulting in a titanium rod being put in from knee to hip, inserted at the hip, with nails, 2 at the knee and 2 above the break.  Anyways on and off I get a pain in the left side of my knee right between the knee cap and that knot feeling area towards the inside of the leg.  It only does it when I am trying to get up(and it doesnt do it alot, maybe a few times a year) but it hurts bad.  Here today at the last couple of days every now and then when I go to get up it hurts so bad it sends me to the ground, makes me sick it hurts that bad.  it feels like something is catching and it is sharp and quick pain, and then it has a lingering affect of dull pain, right where I described earlier.  This is the worst it has ever been.  I was just wondering if this is normal or is something going on with my nails, I may go to the doctor but it may be another year or more before I can.  So any thoughts would help, thanks.
