weak quads after partial meniscectomy
« on: September 25, 2020, 07:33:39 PM »
Hi everybody !
I had partial meniscectomy 9 months ago for a tear in the medial meniscus of my right knee. The pain has gone since then but new problems have appeared since then. My quads are really weak despite of doing PT and exercise at home. I stopped later coz I was frustrated ! I have this problem of catching in my knee. I can feel hard scar tissues under the portal incision near the knee cap in the medial side. I did another MRI and it shows another tear ! however the surgeon told me it is the place where he trimmed the tear and the scar tissue is causing the whole problem. He injected the area with a corticosteroid '2 times " in 3 months. unfortunately, the scars are there and my quads are really weak and I can feel popping above the knee cap.
note, when I bend my knee , the catching releases. it is not painful at all .
I walk with a limb. and I can't run !

Can anybody help me ? Have you ever had this problem after partial meniscectomy ?
