2 weeks after Arthroscopy and still swollen
« on: June 22, 2011, 03:56:04 PM »
i had an arthroscopy 2 weeks ago to diagnose my left knee after injured in a soccer game...OS said it was just a Partial PCL Tear and all other things like ACL,MCL and mensci are intatct (Thank god) i went home next day and after 7 days stiches were removed.

the thing is at that time one puncture wound out of two, seemed swollen underneath and aching when i touch or try bend the knee (wound is recovered not infected). OS said it will be alright and prescribed sm medicine and PT.

after 14 days now its is still the same for that punture wound and it still aches when i try to press it or try to bend knee more than 100 degrees and it feels Hot.

is this normal??? what should i do??

i want to be at grounds soon again...!
please reply

Hi
Arthroscopy 'portals' can bother one for some time. If it feels hot then it suggests there may be some infection, but as long as the wound is dry your doctor is probably right that it will settle. Best to seek help if the would becomes weepy.

If the wound is red or hot I would be concerned about infection.  When I had my scope I was swollen for over a month and had to get it drained.  Just keep an eye on it and keep the Dr informed on its progress.
