Patella Cartilage Lesions
« on: January 11, 2019, 04:02:09 AM »
I keep reading posts on here of people saying they have Patella chondral lesions. Some guy had multiple grade 4 lesions. He was complaining that he couldn't run anymore. But walking is fine for him. I guess everyone is different but there's people on here with Grade 1-2 lesions, and can barely walk. Its bizarre how things appear severe in certain people, but they get around fine. While others appear to not have much damage, but they can barely walk. It's bizarre!!!!

This paradox seems to be somewhat of a mystery for many orthopedics surgeons as well. I think, however, that Dr. Lars Blond lays out a quite nice theory on how this is possible (for cartilage lesions in knees in general) in the below article:
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

If there's any surgeon you can trust, it's Lars Blond.
