Hey you !!

Go see a doc and you get the right help immidiately instead of trying to figure it out by yourself.
For me it sounds that your knee isn't healed. Isn't easy to answer so difficult question when your not a surgeon and with almost no background. Hope you get help really soon.

hugs nettan   ;D

Please explain what they did to the meniscus. Was the thermal shrinkage applied to the meniscus or a ligament? Was it a 'discoid' meniscus?

thermal shrinkage was done to meniscus.i think intense pain i feel is from plica removal,my kneecap was tracking one way for 30 yrs., now it is tracking differently.i have intense pain when i extend my leg, most likely due to the chondral leision.i go for another mri on 11/24/03.my doc says pain maybe from scar tissue that "rollled"into joint.doc also thinks mri will only show no muscle.
