Knee cartilage injury recovery time

Common Questions and Answers about Knee cartilage injury recovery time


Avatar m tn I just went back the other day for my follow up because my knee pain has gotten worse and he thinks i have damaged cartilage in my knee and if i do he said i need surgery. So if i do have to have surgery how long is the recovery and will i have to wear knee braces if i play these sports from now on?
Avatar m tn So far, they want to core out the affected bone, and take a piece of bone and cartilage from one of my knee regions so that they can transplant the bone from there to where the OCD was. I was told that none of the surgeons in this whole group has never done this exact procedure. I was told something about them being unable to reach the affected region and may have to break another bone in order to get to it.

But either way, that is now seen, it's now a fact of your knee. Sorry about that! RICE is often applied to help with it. (rest, ice, compression and elevation) to reduce swelling. Doctor can give a professional ice wrap. If doc says it's okay, you can take ibuprofen. Some people are okay with just that.
Avatar n tn Hi! I'm sorry to hear about your knee. It sounds to me like either a ligament or possibly cartilage. Does it feel unstable or is it still giving out on you? Does it ache after sitting for long amounts of time? Is your pain off to the side of the knee or under your knee cap? These answers may help me know better.
Avatar n tn The reason the arthroscopy was done is due to knee pain as a result of meniscus tear n torn cartilage. My doctor is not at our town. I have to fly in to another town to do the arthroscopy. I did call my doctor & was advise that this is normal after the incision. Well, I now can walk around but slow. My knees seem not able to support me even normal daily thing like going to toilet. I need some support in order to sit down or stand up. Just wonder if it is normal.
Avatar n tn Medial compartment: There is near full-thickness cartilage loss and fissuring over the weightbearing portions of the right medial femoral condyle and medial tibial plateau, slightly progressed compared to the prior study from 3/4/16. Lateral compartment: There is partial thickness cartilage thinning over the weightbearing portions of the lateral femoral condyle and tibial plateau. Patellofemoral compartment: Intact. Joint fluid and synovial structures: Moderate-sized right knee joint effusion.
Avatar m tn upon leaving they gave me a foam knee brace and sent me on my way. When I got home and tried on the knee brace I found out it was way to large (XXL) to the point of it being almost comical (I'm 130 lbs., maybe if I was a NFL running back it would fit.
Avatar m tn s done but everything was O.K.. Could this mean that I may have caused some damage to the knee cap, like the cartilage under it? I have had a mosaicplasty done on this same knee before. Thank you for your time.
Avatar f tn I was sprinting and pivoted on my knee and heard and felt a pop. There was some swelling after the initial injury. I saw an orthopedic surgeon and was told it was either a possible tear in my acl, strain, or cartilage damage. The MRI came back negative. I decided to just play through the pain because it wasnt unbearable and the season was almost over. I went to lacrosse camp and it really started bothering me. I went back to the doctor and was told to start physical therapy.
Avatar f tn Thank you for your answer - it keeps getting stranger. I have found something called "articular cartilage injury" and my symptoms seem more in line with that!
Avatar n tn I am a healthy 46 year old man. 5 months ago I sustained a serious knee injury. I have a large bucket handle tear with some pain and limited mobility. I have been trying to rehab the knee myself ever since the injury. I don’t think surgery would turn out well for me for the following reasons. 1) Dr. Wants to remove 80% of the posterior horn. 2) removal of 50-75% body/root. 3) some degree of ACL tearing (that will not be addressed).
1524655 tn?1291420532 If the articular cartilage damage is shallow (grades 1 or 2) you may not experience any pain from the defect at this stage as the sensitive nerve endings in the subchondral bone are still covered with some articular cartilage. As you had pain with the damage that means the injury also damaged some nerves beneath the cartilage. The damage to nerves and subchondral bone can start a healing process in the defect.
1247571 tn?1296572214 I have gone to a orthopedic specialist after the second time it came out of place. I was told it was a cartilage injury and that it would heal it's self. As you have read, this is not the case.
Avatar f tn You need to know I have arthritis in both knees and no cartilage left under knee caps. My knee instantly was hurting but mostly when trying to walk normal. I can walk stiff legged and it doesn't hurt too bad but flex the knee and it has sharp pain like i have walking up and down stairs because of the knee caps. I sit in a normal position but lifting foot causing lots of pain around knee cap. I'm guessing I probably pulled something. Have put ice on it and taken ibu.
Avatar n tn The MRI showed no abnormalities in my meniscus and there was significant trauma to my knee during my recent injury. Significant swelling occurred at the time of injury and I was immobile for nearly a week after the surgery. Also, I was considered nearly 100% healed after my initial ACL reconstruction in 2001. It does not always pop and never has until the injury this May. I never had difficulties with the knee after my surgery until that day.
Avatar f tn i am experiencing alot of stiffness and a little swelling, there is also something the feels like it is moving when i extend my knee. should i be worried about another injury?
Avatar m tn on investigating they found that my femor and knee cap was in a bad way and worn and in time i will need a knee cap replacement, however thankfully not at the present time. Iam a fit person who teaches amrtial arts. My problem is that it has been weeks since my operation but the knee is still badly swollen and sore and i am still struggling to straighten it and bend it behonf 40 degrees..
Avatar f tn I am a 14 year old female and had arthroscopic surgery with microfracture to repair torn articular cartilage about 8 months ago. after physical therapy and lots of rest, i was cleared to play lacrosse again. My knee was feeling alot better and stronger. i still wear a brace while i play to try to prevent any further injury. however, i'm afraid its injured again.
Avatar f tn It started off as cartilage wearing out. In 2015 I revisited the doctor after 7 years with knee pain once again. My PCP said I had a Patella Tracking Disorder. Fast forward to 2016 and I had an MRI done that revealed a Level One ACL injury along with cartilage damage as well as Tendonitis and Bursitis. I went through Physical Therapy and my pain was very minimal (have always had slight knee pain) for about two months before I started having the problems again.
Avatar m tn A pain that goes away when you rest, but comes back when you start dancing and jumping again sounds like injury to cartilage or an intervertebral disc, which do not heal quickly or without treatment. Yes, please see a doctor for a diagnosis and treatment.
Avatar f tn Moderately thinned with full thickness denuded cartilage across the central weightbearing aspect measuring 7 mm wide x 11 mm AP. Lateral tibial plateau cartilage: Mildly thinned peripherally. No lateral joint line osteophytosis. Medial meniscus: Grossly intact. Medial femoral condyle cartilage: Mildly thinned. Medial tibial plateau cartilage: Minimally thinned. No medial joint line osteophytosis.
Avatar n tn In most reports it is found that arthritis occurs after injury to the knee. My Doctor says the Bakers Cyst is on the side of the Knee. Having the knee injury in 2003, there was no prior problems, No Arthritis. MRI and x-rays’ caused the Reading Doctor to assume there was some damage. The Knee stayed swollen for 7 years. After 3 years the readings were indicating Arthritis. Now in 2011 it is minimal cartilage, and have been disabled.
Avatar f tn I used to play a lot of soccer and have not in years, but I remember having knee and ankle pain quite often, enough so that I frequently wore knee braces and wrapped both ankles. I now play golf, and after playing one day I noticed some knee pain. There was no specific incident or sudden onset of pain - it just gradually appeared. I also started hearing more popping noises than usual, but now it hurt and I felt movement.
