Over a year and frustrated
« on: December 22, 2019, 11:40:22 PM »
I was in a MVA last year, hit by an oncoming vehicle that crossed the Centre line. Complained about right knee pain upon admission yet main focus was a broken pelvis. When I started getting active again, soon after my right knee started hurting. Saw my doctor many times and went through lots of PT for patella femoral pain, due to possible muscle imbalances. Did this PT for 7 months with no real change. Now waiting for an MRI (xrays inconclusive) Am told perhaps a meniscus tear. Iím at the end of my rope! Bad days I canít do much, good days I can maybe walk two kilometers or bike 6 kilometers. Still always have an awareness that something is not right.
I wish I knew what was going on!
Any thoughts out there? I also just needed to vent I guess.:(

Wait and see what the MRI shows. Do be prepared for it to show nothing (if it could be PFS) , arrange to see a knee specialist (maybe another specialised in PFS if needed) to discuss the findings and next steps.

Good luck

Thanks for your reply. Can PFS get so bad that some days itís hard to walk? I made it through my workday with a sore knee yet this evening I am limping around the house. It just feels like itís getting worse lately. A bad flare up?

Sorry to hear what you are going through and yes pfs can get so bad that it's hard to walk - I'm right now about to start my exercises but scared as yesterday they set off a full day of pain - I'd previously been really optimistic as had a few good days - one incorrect movement can start it all off again - my knees are the last thing i think about before i go to sleep and the first thing when i wake - its draining but I will fight on regardless x
