Big problem.
« on: November 05, 2018, 04:41:29 PM »
Hi guys.

I m back in the forum to have some advices about this damn knee.

One year ago, I had an arthroscopy to remove my broken meniscus, since then I have burning feelings in my thigh (see in the picture below) . I had an mri that showed only very small chondropathy. X rays are perfect and EMG test is perfect also.

I think it's a nerve injury. I can't really sleep at night becose of the burning sensation and wearing pants makes me feel pain sensation.

I don't want to take pills becose of the side effects. Does anyone cured of this here? I'm very upset about it a'd really want to cut my leg off. I need some advices, becose I want to be cured, not hide symptoms with pills. I think that fasting can be a good deal to restore the nerve. Any links about natural medecine, patches, and supplements that can help me to have a normal life, li'e walking and working. Can't not work 1t the moment becose the pain is putting me down, I'm sad.

Thanks guys.

Hi Frenchknee,

Sorry to hear that you are still struggling...have you visited a pain specialist or pain clinic yet? You need to see somebody who is an expert on nerve pain. Ordinary knee surgeons are not, but could probably still refer you to a pain specialist/clinic if you ask.
RK sharp pain while running, diagnosis chondromalacia patellae 6/09
RK arthroscopic chondroplasty 9/09
RK rehab, recovery, 90% normal, started running again -> back to square one 5/15
RK diagnosis patellofemoral arthritis + LK diagnosis chondromalacia patellae 8/15 -> conservative treatment

The nerve supply there comes from the lower back - - the only association with the meniscectomy might be poor handling when you were anaesthetised. Otherwise you should not assume it is related to the knee surgery as it may be a different problem and need proper investigation.
