Pain in side of knee
« on: April 05, 2013, 06:00:19 AM »
I tore my ACL playing football back in October, and had ACL and lateral meniscus surgery with a hamstring graft in November. I am now 22 weeks out. I was working out in the gym yesterday and was doing single leg leg extensions, and decided since I was so far out I could challenge myself a little. about half way through my reps I got a moderate pain in the middle of my knee and on the inside of my knee starting about mid quad and running down to my calf. So I stopped doing the leg extensions and went on with the rest of my workout with no problem. Then when I was exercising today, i.e. running, I ran one lap fine, my knee felt great, then when i took a turn half way through the second lap my knee started popping and having a grinding sound, I got a pain on the inside of my knee, and my knee felt weaker. I also had the pain on the inside of my knee when I was doing my quad stretches at the end. After the workout, after sitting for a little while when I started to walk my knee felt really stiff. Is this something to worry about, and get checked out, or did I just over work my knee?

No one on the Internet can really advise whether this is serious or not, best contact your physio or surgeon

Popping and grinding could be anything, someone needs to examine your knee

November is not that long ago, were you cleared bt your physio to return to running etc?

I'd say RICE until you have sought advice and avoid strenuous activities

Best make an appointment with your physio or surgeon if it's bothering you
