Dont know whats wrong with my knee
« on: July 14, 2014, 05:59:50 PM »
So on June 27, I injured my knee on a trampoline. As I was falling I heard a crack and then instant pain. I couldn't walk or drive. Went to ER n they did a xray, not broken (thankful). They gave me a knee immobilizer, crutches n pain meds. I followed up with orthopedic doc who gave me a better immobilizer and scheduled a mri. He never said my acl was torn but he hinted at it. I wasnt able to walk for the first week and few days. Well actual I'm I started being able to walk with the immobilizer last Tuesday. It still hurts, but not as much. I still can't bend my knee at all . I tried and itshurts like crazy, and its still swollen. Most of the swelling on the upper part of my knee and my thigh. I'm going crazy because I dont know what's going on. Had MRI Friday, results tomorrow any suggestions does it sound like it's torn.

Thank you in advance

It sounds like any number of things could be wrong. I know tomorrow feels like an eternity but try to be patient. The MRI will most likely give the doc a very clear pic of what's wrong.
11/12 MRI dx damage to articular cartilage with patellar mal-tracking
3/13 right knee lateral release, meniscetomy, chondroplasty of patella
09/13 Knee condition deteriorated. 3rd round Intense physical therapy
08/14 Fulkerson Osteotomy
