Bone bruise VMO will not heal!
« on: March 06, 2014, 10:00:16 PM »
Bone bruise I received in cycling accident in July has not healed. VMO seems to have repetitive strain. Cannot walk and have to use crutches.....seems like it gets a bit better but build up the knee to where I can walk 5 min and then reinjure it again. I am now into month 8 with NO progress and one OS says just walk on it ( impossible ) and the other says its just time and wait. MRI shows less signal than original MRI however symptomatically its the same. EMG shows no nerve disfunction on VMO. I am desperate now as I don't know where to look anymore as OS say nothing can be done. Meanwhile I literally cannot walk after all this time and the strain on my back put me in the hospital in Jan for 3 weeks. I was a healthy 58 year old cyclist with no knee problems before when I had the accident in July. I know bone bruises can take time but there should be SOME progress in 8 months no? I have never seen anyone have this kind of injury with no progress. If anyone can help then please help me.
Thank you
