knee pain from sitting to standing
« on: April 14, 2011, 02:29:56 PM »
Hi all,
In July 2010 I had a knee arthroscopy to partially remove the medial meniscus on my left knee after a fall, well 9 months on I still have problems with my knee getting stuck at night after laying on my side but the worse thing is the "Good Right knee" is now more painful.

When I get up from sitting the pain is unbearable to the point where I have to stand first before moving off and walking it is at the back of the knee and top of the calf...I am now being referred to a Muscoskeletal department in my local Hospital and await their appointment.

Has anyone else suffered with pain in the opposite leg to the operated one?


Thanks

Caz

It is very common to get pain onthe opposite leg to the injured leg because you will have been putting a considerable amount of weight on it, that it is used to, in order compensate for the sore leg.

Hi Chainsaw,
I said that to my GP but he said that the fact that it appears to be getting worse might mean there is another underlying problem hence the referral. I have been given chilli cream in the mean time to rub in which burns.
