Re: "bad tracking" after MCL injury?

Matt~ Well I didn't have mal tracking after a ligament injury and maybe someone has experienced what you have on this board but if not a lot of us have had mal tracking issues. Seeing a OS is a very good idea. Let us know what the doctor says and I'm sorry I can't be more helpful. If you have any mo...

Re: Post TTT Will my knee always look swollen & di

Re: Funny Knee Feelings

I agree on the shaving one. Also I find it funny when my op leg is resting against something and I don't know it because I can't really feel it. Great topic! Georgie

Re: Doctors don't know much about rehab

My OS isn't in contact with my PT. He get's the report of my activities faxed to him the day before I go in for my appointment. However I don't feel like I am misguided or that my OS doesn't care. I guess every doctor is different.

Re: Scar from TTT

I had my right knee TTT 2 years ago and as much as I think people can notice my scar I don't think they can. It has lightened up alot. As my mom says though wear your battle scars proudly!! :D Don't worry it will look better though. Take care, Georgie

Scars?

Hey everyone~
I was just wondering what everyone has tried and has had luck with on their scars? I am trying Merderma this time around. I tried Vitamin E only on my other leg. Has anyone tried Merderma? Did it work well? Take care, Georgie

Re: Stiff knees

I am 6 weeks post op from my second TTT. I had a cast for those 6 weeks and I am just started PT this week. I am at 75 degrees as of Tuesday. I think ROM is a hard one because sometimes you feel a lot of pain but don't see alot of proof of it. I can bend and bend but only get so many degrees farther...
