Common Questions and Answers about Knee cap hairline fracture


Avatar m tn have a knot on knee cap when to doc. 1974 said it was like munchhousen something and not the one for women doc.
Avatar m tn but i do think all the messing about and the wrong cast couldve made it worse than it originally was. When seeing the xray, it was a small crack with a hairline fracture going down towards the knee.

117078 tn?1200022671 Hi...I fell hard on the sidewalk on my right knee cap and I immediately had swelling and a large amount of fluid on top of the kneecap. I was not able to bend my knee at all. I elevated it for several hours and put ice on it. I tried to get up and my right foot turns dark blue and the veins stick out and start to swell immediately, the swelling i n the knee returns immediately even though it goes down a little bit with elevation and I still can not bend it.

You could also take a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory as and when required. Sometimes debridement of the torn ligament and damaged cartilage helps reduce the pain. However, yes, it is not a permanent cure. Please consult all aspects of an arthroscopic surgery with your doctor. Take care!
Avatar m tn About 4 months ago I fell over on a tile floor straight onto my knee cap. After about a week of mild pain the pain went away. In the last few weeks I have been noticing more slight pain in the knee, as well as some perceived weakness in the knee. I've also found a slight bump across the patellar tendon, and overall the knee does not seem to feel right. Should I be seeing a doctor, or could this possibly be something I can treat at home? Any ideas on what it could be? Thank you.
Avatar n tn Osteochondral lesion also often comes about due to fracture. Sublexation of petella I believe means dislocation of the knee cap. Mucinous degenerative change is kind of rare from what I've read and can limit motion. Are you experiencing that? Plica are layers in the knee. There are usually 4 and they help it bend and move. It sounds like there is an issue with your medial plica. It can be from irritation or injury. Sounds like your knee is jacked up.
Avatar f tn Hi. . If you had recently fallen and hurt your knee, you might have had a bleeding inside your joint and collection of blood in the joint space along with some fracture. I would advise you to immediately see an orthopedician and get an x-ray or a MRI of the affected joint done. Please do not ignore it.
Avatar n tn You can have a hairline fracture that will only show on an MRI or x-ray. Usually these heal by themselves.

Avatar n tn She woke up yesterday with a Swollen bump under her knee cap that is the size of 1/2 her knee. The top of it has a spot on it that looks like she scrapped or burned it like a rug burn. Says when she presses on it, it burns/hurts. Hurts to bend but only because of the skin being pulled. Obviously I told her to go to the dr tomorrow to get checked out which she is. She has been iceing it.
Avatar m tn x-rays show obvious knee cap deteriation ( less than 50 % of the other knee in size ) and an old MRI report said slight sublexation- I have two questions untill I get a different referral from my PCP ( although the doc stated the obvious about the knee cap he did not even bother to allow me to show him what happens when I bend my knee and it wobbles and crunchs and did not even offer a brace solution to my falls ) 1.
Avatar f tn What does everyone suggest to help get rid of cradle cap?
Avatar f tn ve been limping ever since the knee looks deformed there was a massive purple bruise which has now gone down. There is still swelling on the knee cap and the leg feels numb yet painful and tingly to the toes. It's my right leg so it's my main leg and I don't know what to do. I can move my leg but its really painful. if i touch the knee is tender and if i move my fingers on it the knee feels like it's jarring. Nothing seems like a comfortable position.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have pain in the tibia of my left leg, which I think is below the knee cap. The pain started when I was 18, after I got an injury during a basketball game. Now I'm 20 and I still feel the pain only when I engage in physical activity. What's wrong with me. Could these by osgood schlatters disease?
Avatar n tn I had a bad fall about a year ago where I landed full force onto my knee which resulted in swelling and bruising that went from my knee down to my foot. I had pain on certain movements from then on. When I would get up sometimes my knee felt like it gave out. Also since then I have not been able to kneel down without pain in the kneecap.
Avatar n tn A preexisting condition called as chondromalacia predisposes individuals to wear and tear of the cartilage under the knee cap. The pattern of cartilage damage seen with chondromalacia is distinct from the degeneration seen in arthritis, and the damage from chondromalacia is thought to be capable of repair, unlike that seen with arthritis. Treatment is by resting the knee and adhering to a proper physical therapy program.
10354469 tn?1409533617 She got through physical therapy and wsa doing great until she fell onto her hand and broke her hand, wrist and knee cap. Why did she fall? She wore flip flops to her last physical therapy session because it was in the pool. The kneecap is doing well but that was a bad wrist fracture.
17824095 tn?1460462601 I was told to bear weight on left as tolerated. This is the leg with a fractured knee cap. In normal circumstances, a fracture to on lower extremity would be tolerable due to being able to "hobble' around on a " good" leg. But having a shattered knee cap on the side that I am to "bear weight" is not only difficult but extremely painful. My pain level to my right foot is down to a dull throb and is tolerable. My knee pain however is constant.
Avatar f tn I went to an orthopedist that did an xray and said I had a hairline fracture on the radius and put a short arm cast on. It's now been 3 weeks since the cast came on and the pain has gotten worse on the bones i mentioned. So I went to a hand and wrist speciality orthopedist for a second opinion. He did another set of xrays and didnt find the fracture (or any other) of the wrist but said the pain on the bones was because of the wrist being immobilized.
Avatar m tn Seven days ago I fell on a staircase and got a hairline fracture on my fifth vertebreas on the lower right side of the vertebreas how long will it take to heal? I also work on a hotshot wildland firefighting crew and our job begins in about a month and a half will I be able to do that type of strenuous work?
Avatar n tn A hairline fracture can cause pain but will not cause deformity which makes a complete fracture obvious. If it is a hairline fracture it would not be able to be told apart from a sprain without an x-ray. Just make an appointment with your doctor or go to a walk in clinic.
Avatar m tn Now I dont really feel pain but there is a little ball on one of my ribs where I fell on the ball. What can it be? I wondered if it was a hairline fracture and maybe calcium just formed around it. I can only feel it when im active also now. Do you think this is something serious? Also when the accident happened I didnt having any trouble breathing either. Im open ears to everything, thanks.
Avatar m tn my right hand elbow is fractured with hairline then I consult a Orthopaedic doctor he create a x-ray of my hand and he find a hairline fracture in my he advised me to take a one month my plaster has open but my hand not work properly.I feel very hard,tightness. what I do for this please help me..
Avatar f tn Per x-ray of the elbow it is positive for a hairline fracture of my radial bone. I was treated for pain, immobilization with a sling and ice application for 24-48 hours for 15 minutes every 2 hours. My orthopedist said I can use the sling for comfort and to start exercising the affected arm. Is that a good advice? I thought if you have a fracture, one needs to immobilize it? How long will this hairline fracture heal? My left elbow is still swollen, can I apply warm compress?
