when will it ever end
« on: February 23, 2011, 03:14:08 AM »
 Hi every one!
   ive just had my second knee arthroscopy as of 1-28-2011.I've been having severe knee pain for the last 4 days! The last surgery was to clean up some scar tissue. My surgeon said i may need a cartilidge graft, but he's hoping i won't. Could my thin cartilidge be causing my pain? I start physical theraphy tom.and i'm wondering if i will be able to do it. Any imput would be greatly appreciated.
                       thank you
                         greeneyes09  :(

Sorry you are in pain been there done that still doing that. Yes it could be just about anything.  Most people see a  scope as a mickey mouse procedure, but remember they fill the inner knee space with either air of water stretch everything out of place grind away at stuff cartilage and who knows what else.  Just keep an eye on it if it doesn't improve call the OS's office your GP or someone to have it assested to make sure there is nothing bad going on in there, ie infection, loose bodies etc.
Take Care,

Hang in there Greeneyes,
It will get better, it just takes time.  This knee stuff is not for the faint of heart or the impatient. It is a total time thing.
Glad today was a little better.
Take Care, ;)

Hey Greeneyes,
Sorry about the pain.  I hear you went to my 3rd Pt and in the same condition as you.  Take something for the pain and ice and elevate above your heart.  Get some peas or other frozen vegies for the job.  make sure to put something between the skin and cold stuff so you don't damage the skin.
Take Care, Hang in there you can make it. ;)

Greeneyes,
Knees are loaded with nerve endings so whenever they do knee work it does really hurt even if it is just minor work.
Call just to be sure, or maybe he/she can perscribe something for the pain if you are not already takaing something with some kick.
Keep struggling and icing.

Hey Greeneyes,
You are just telling it like it is. Don't feel bad about letting it out. We all have to let it out or it will eat you up.  Most on here have been struggling for years so we do know how frustrating and annoying it can be.
Check out the whole site with the heading of grafts and such you will find more help form those who have had that done. I have been in pain since my early teens and now in my mid 40's .  You may never have a perfect knee but as long as the knee is less painful you can move forward with your life and adjust activities accordingly.
Hang in there Greeneyes the sun will shine again. ;)
Take care and rant when necessary, ;)
