crack then grinding
« on: August 09, 2010, 02:42:00 PM »
A little about my history 1st. I have had 4 knee operations in 5 years all due to torn meniscus cartilage.
My left has had a complete removal of the medial cartilage and my right knee has had 2 operations to repair the medial cartilage.
I have been playing football the last two years with no problems. However the other day I was jogging along well I felt a crack in my left knee then it swolled up. The following days saw the swelling increase and I had crackling And grinding noises in my knee, not really much pain when straightening or bending nor if I apply any pressure to the knee. Tho I sometimes get a pianful click in the knee when walking.
I havn't seen the specialist yet as I'm waiting for an appointment. Anyone have any advice to what I might have done?

I am not a expert, but the last time my knee,in March popped, and was catching, i needed to have a loose fragment removed, and my meniscus trimmed. Once it was all cleaned up, the popping stopped.
2006 right knee surgery, meniscus
2008 left knee lateral release,  meniscus
2009 microfracture left knee, lateral meniscus,  fragment
2009 cartilage transplant oats
2010 loose fragment removal, meniscus fraying,found another defect
2010 oats failed, synvesic injections ,2011 right knee meniscus
