Physio ??????
« on: November 08, 2010, 06:15:39 PM »
Hey,

Have posted in other threads. Just back from physio. Have been going for 5 weeks now but cannot get my knee past 55 degress. The physio has advised me that the OS might want to put me under anaestetic so he can forcefully bend my knee.

Has anyone ever had this done ?

Thanks in advance

Hi, you didnt say what your injury was, but if you go on to BONE BREAKS AROUND THE KNEE, quite a few people have had this performed, so should be able to answer your questions.

Hi,

Sorry, i have recurrent dislocations of my patella but this has been the worst. Cannot bend it and the pain is still severe even though its been 11 weeks since it happened

Thanks

For the past 5 months I've only managed to get mine to bend to 80 max (over that 5m period) and the last month has been to 90, so I share and feel your pain/frustration. I am finally being sent for sugery this week to repair the tear they have finally agreed is on my medial meniscus, which is assumedly why I still have pain, and restricted ROM. I know they plan on seeing how far it will bend under general as well as testing my ACL properly
May 2010 RK suspected dislocation, grade 1 MCL
July 2010 MRI - tear medial meniscus, suggestive ACL tear
Nov 2010 Meniscectomy RK ACL still intact
Aug 2011 MRI - posterior horn tear lateral meniscus, inflammation posterior patella
Jan 2012 x-ray - lateral tilt patella
