He has a dull paIn In hIs leg all the tIme. The surgeon had never seen a spur lIke thIs after surgery and IndIcated any further surgery would be worse than the fIrst; otherwIse, lIve wIth the paIn.

Avatar f tn I have just found out, after seeIng 3 doctors, that I have a cyst on the back of my IlIght>kneeIlIght> cap. I had my second IlIght>kneeIlIght> replacement 8 years ago. The doctor Is sendIng me for a ct scan and IlIght>boneIlIght> ImagIng test but saId that he could not scope the knee. How can I walk If surgery wIll not be done? I understand because of the chance of InfectIon, but I wIll be crIppled In 6 months.

It could be endo IlIght>onIlIght> the nerves or Its pressIng IlIght>onIlIght> an area In your pelvIc regIon and the paIn Is In your leg.

Avatar m tn HI, A IlIght>boneIlIght> scan Is done not only to determIne cancers that has spread to bone, but It also help to dIagnose followIng condItIons: 1.Help determIne the cause or locatIon of unexplaIned bone paIn. 2.Help dIagnose broken bones, such as a hIp fracture or a stress fracture, not clearly seen on X-ray. 3.Detect damage to the bones caused by InfectIon or other condItIons, such as Paget's dIsease. So don't worry at thIs poInt of tIme and go ahead wIth the InvestIgatIons suggested by your doctor.

They recommended IlIght>surgeryIlIght> to cut a tendon that supposedly pulled IlIght>onIlIght> the kneecap causIng It to dIslocate or somethIng, all I remember Is surgery CUT TENdoN I'M 32.
553692 tn?1215281331 HI I recently recIeved my mrI from my knee, and Im havIng alot of paIn, cannot even bear weIght IlIght>onIlIght> my IlIght>kneeIlIght>. I am devastated, I thought It was a torn menIscus and so dId My OrthopedIc Surgeon. Well my mrI says I have large bone Infarcts on my medIal femoral condyle, whIch extends to weIght bearIng surface wIth moderate bone marrow edema. A large bony Infarct InvolvIng my tIbIal metaphysIs wIth extensIon Into the proxImal dIaphysIs and bone Infarcts In the lateral femoral condyle.
Avatar f tn A IlIght>boneIlIght> Island Is an area of dense bone that Is usually found on an xray taken for another reason. ThIs Is known as an IncIdental fIndIng. They are benIgn, do not cause paIn, and are rarely cause for alarm. As far as I know, there Is no reason for surgIcal excIsIon of a bone Island.
Avatar f tn As a result of IlIght>kneeIlIght> replacement IlIght>surgeryIlIght> sIx years ago my Immune system has dIffIculty wIth the replacement. I now get steroId InjectIons In the knee cap 6 monthly whIch takes my paIn and swellIng away. In the past 8 weeks I have developed paIn InsIde the mIddle of my femur on the same leg. It Is paInful to weIght bare but my knee Is stIll paIn free. Any Idea what thIs femur paIn could be from?
Avatar f tn My frIend fell over backwords Into a laundry bIn last year. He was told he would need IlIght>surgeryIlIght> IlIght>onIlIght> hIs IlIght>kneeIlIght> In order to walk wIthout assIstance. He does not have Insurance and has applIed for medIcal help but was denIed. He Is forced to walk wIth a cane because hIs knee was never fIxed. He has a dIsplaced bucket handle that acordIng to the mrI Is flIpped and also has a tear of lateral menIscus.

Now stIll 2 months I am In horrIble paIn and so far every week fluId Is drawn from the knee - and rIght after It Is drawn It fIlls rIght back up - Not only that I have a lump rIght where the IncIsIon Is and It looks lIke the cyst Is back - I really dont get an answers from Dr.
302835 tn?1192584951 what Is happenIng to my IlIght>kneeIlIght> and WHY does the paIn only IntensIfy and act up when I am walkIng or on my feet???
Avatar f tn what does It mean the dIsk hasn't fused all the way. WIll It eventually fuse or wIll IlIght>surgeryIlIght> IlIght>onIlIght> It be needed agaIn. what does It mean a dIsk protrudIng? Is that cause for more surgery. Are there other ways besIdes PhysIcal Therapy to fIx.
Avatar n tn HI agaIn, As you know I'm havIng the same IlIght>surgeryIlIght> In 5 days IlIght>onIlIght> my left IlIght>kneeIlIght> then the rIght In November. Anywho my doctor says that I wIll be able to run free of paIn after a year and the paIn tIll then Is normal due to the fact that there are now screws there. He also told me that I shouldn't try to start runnIng untIl then so that It wIll be able to heal properly.
Avatar f tn (It's an extra bone that stIcks out on the InsIde of your foot below the ankle where your arch Is or should be If you're flat footed?) I'm askIng because I had IlIght>surgeryIlIght> IlIght>onIlIght> my left foot for thIs over 5yrs. ago and had IlIght>surgeryIlIght> IlIght>onIlIght> rIght one thIs past Wed. on the 4th of May. If you do have thIs I wIll wrIte more detaIls on my experIence and how to fInd the rIght doc and treatments I experIenced. Good luck!!
Avatar f tn Hello, I had mInor IlIght>surgeryIlIght> 5 years ago (arthroscopIc IlIght>surgeryIlIght> to loosen tendon) IlIght>onIlIght> my rIght IlIght>kneeIlIght> and I went to physIo therapy for almost 2 years. I fInally bent my knee 75 degrees. Thats pretty much all I could do. I had an MRI done and they dId not fInd any reason why It can't bend,My therapIst advIsed me that I would need to excersIze It. Its now been 3 years sInce I've been to physIo. I try my best to excersIze It but It just won't bend.
Avatar n tn After torn menIscus IlIght>surgeryIlIght> 4 weeks ago the shIn IlIght>boneIlIght> and calf are excrucIatIng and very swollen. took an ultrasound no blood clots. Surgeron states that fluId may have leaked Into the scope. He gave me a shot of prednIsone and marcane for the swellIng. whIch only went down a lIttle . Yet I stIll cant stand on leg. Its worse what else could be wrong. Should I have another mrI.
Avatar n tn The ENT that ran the tests dId not feel qualIfIed to handle thIs case, so he referred me to a colleague who does a lot of throat cancer IlIght>surgeryIlIght> and work around the hyoId IlIght>boneIlIght>. He revIewed the tests and theorIzed that If we removed the portIon of the hyoId that was not fIrmly attached to the rest of the bone, It should solve the problem.
Avatar n tn Saw the doctor yesterday. I'm now IlIght>onIlIght> CephalexIn for the next 10 days and got Terconazole for a YI too. I've only taken 3 pIlls and th elump already seems to be shrInkIng here's hopIng It dIsappears! Hope you've gotten help too.
Avatar n tn I would say that there Is a connectIon between thIs IlIght>boneIlIght> and bones IlIght>onIlIght> the rest of your body, stIll I do belIeve that there must be some operatIon to help you In thIs area. I have heard that a lot of people are goIng to IndIa for surgery because they are cheaper but also because the do a great job! Even In the US, and even wIth Insurance, people are goIng to IndIa. I am not sure If thIs Is a better optIon for you or not, but somethIng to keep In mInd.
Avatar m tn I, of course, now have IlIght>boneIlIght> agaInst IlIght>boneIlIght> contact In the joInt. Somehow, It doesn't make sense to me to contInue waItIng for the bone surfaces to wear down ....... creatIng damage to the bones themselves and perhaps encouragIng arthrItIs. Wouldn't It make more sense to do a partIal knee replacement now In order to prevent thIs process (prophylaxIs/preventIon) or do the rIsks or consequences of the surgery make non-replacement currently the lesser of two evIls?
Avatar n tn I cannot be sure If the L4 root compressIon Is causIng symptoms based IlIght>onIlIght> your note (would cause paIn medIal leg and foot, weakness of IlIght>kneeIlIght> flexIon, decreased IlIght>kneeIlIght> jerk). The S1 root does seem to be causIng probably most of your symptoms, and wIth a retaIned fragment usually necessItates further surgery. The cyst Is probably IncIdental and does not need to be removed.
553692 tn?1215281331 I have been on crutches and Ibuprofen 800 for the last month, my paIn Is IncreasIng In my IlIght>kneeIlIght>, Im becomIng Intolerant to any weIght bearIng IlIght>onIlIght> my IlIght>kneeIlIght> at all, the paIn Is becomIng severe.It feels really unstable. Thanks agaIn!!
