Avatar n tn I have also been in severe pain with swelling in my left knee 4 months after arthroscopic surgery. I also have a large lump at the site were the scope entered my knee, when I ask the doctor that did the surgery about he said it should go away before I die. I thought this was a horrible thing to say because I was really worried about the lump. I have a hard time even getting to see the doctor and no one seem's concerned about the pain and swelling but me.
Avatar n tn hi I have had a lump on the side of my right knee now for two weeks its very painful to the point I can barely walk on my right leg and the lump has gotten bigger what should I do or what is it?
Avatar n tn Was great for a couple of weeks after the surgery then pain suddenly returned. What started as a small lump under the incision has now grown into a very large and extremely painful lump. Pain is sometimes unbearable. Just visited him for check-up and he says my leg is fine and can't explain the pain other than my leg is hypersensitive because I was on vicodin for almost a year. He said it couldn't be a neuroma because mine was the first neuroma that he has seen in 3 to 5 years.
Avatar n tn It is now may and it still gives out on me about once daily, It is still numb, and now has a lump extending from the right side of me knee cap to what feels like a boneon the inside of my knee. What could this be?
Avatar n tn I've been sweating at night, but not every night. Obvisouly I'm taking the right steps by going to many sources. Any ideas from your end?
Avatar f tn I have a question. I had a knee scope (to clean out scarr tissue underneath knee cap) on 3-26-2012 I only took a week off of work & started PT 9 days after surgery. I am walking better & the bending is getting easier. My question is (my PT guy could not answer) why do I still have fluid on the top of my knee (left side) if the holes are at the bottom sides of the knee cap.
Avatar f tn one incident was when i was running and my right knee gave out and i tried 2 catch myself with my left leg and my left knee gave out 2 so i fell to the floor the doctors put me on crutches for 2 weeks after that. i'm wondering if i should try and get a knee knee does swell when i have been on it and it gets stiff when i've been walking or sitting down. the pain isn't 2 bad just bothers my a lot but i put up with it. can anyone give me an idea on what it could be?
Avatar n tn Another possibility is a swelling in the spine due to the recent surgery. The swelling may be a blood lump or a cyst filled with fluid. This may be along the area where spinal anesthesia was delivered. The pressure on the nerve by virtue of the mass effect would be similar to the impact of a fracture. Try to get learn some more specifics and the information that you need may be better discussed.
Avatar m tn I have a lump on the left side of my left knee 15 days after meniscus tear surgery what is it no pain but swollen rubbing against my knee cap
1087566 tn?1282452330 Often after an injury or surgery, a patient undergoes a period of immobilization to allow the injured area or surgical site to heal properly and to reduce the risk of further damage so he will need crutches and cast for initial period. A below knee partial weight bearing cast may be required if the lesion is excised from distal femur. Take care!
Avatar f tn I am feeling fine. How are you? And who are you? I am 54. My name is Kendra. I do not experience any grinding, locking, catching or giving way of the knee. There are no positions that make my knee uncomfortable other then putting my weight on it while kneeling. It feels totally normal otherwise. The pain is as if I knelt on a sharp rock or tack or even as if my bone is splintered. It began a couple of weeks ago while kneeling.
Avatar f tn My 12 year old son was just diagnosed with bipartite patella after having pain in his left knee which began after a minor traumatic fall on it a year ago. Luckily our family doctor ordered x-rays and our chiropractor ordered a CT scan to review the injury carefully and referred us to a specialist. We took him to see an orthopedic surgeon in Stanford University's Children's Clinic. Her advice was PT first.
Avatar f tn The tear was about 2 inches above my right knee, rear of thigh. Immediately after the injury, I had the sensation of "sitting on a lump". Lumpy area is high in rear right thigh, going into groin area. I have been sitting on this "mass" for all this time. 3 mri's, 1 ct scan, and 2 xrays. They can't see a thing, but I still have involuntary muscle spasms of the hamsting...
Avatar m tn Devote999 i think it looks like baker's cyst (consult a physician) A Baker's cyst is a pocket of fluid that forms a lump behind the knee. It is also called a popliteal cyst. See a picture of a Baker's cyst. Baker's cyst? A Baker's cyst is caused when excess joint fluid is pushed into one of the small sacs of tissue behind the knee. When this sac fills with fluid and bulges out, it is called a cyst.
Avatar n tn i just found a lump, right where the xyphoid is.Above stomach in the center and below rib cage. I have no pain but i do work out. I just want a little knowledge before i get checked out.
Avatar f tn Fat necrosis is a firm, round lump that forms in an area of fatty breast tissue that has been damaged. This may be from previous surgery to the breast or a bruise or injury to the breast. The lump is usually painless, and the skin around it may look red, bruised or dimpled..Sometimes an MRI might also be done to further evaluate following mammogram and Ultrasound.I wouldn't apply any warm compresses until you find out for sure that it's indeed fat necrosis.
Avatar n tn We had tried 3 courses of different antibiotics over the course of 5 months and the lump would grow and shrink accordingly but never quite go away. Finally I ended up having surgery. The lump itself was about 1 inch to the right of where a woman may tear during delivery of a large baby! It was occasionally quite painful. Because of its location the doctor I saw opted to remove the entire lump rather than putting in a wick to try draining.
Avatar m tn They thought it was a granuloma. Now, almost 5 months after the surgery, I have an even larger lump in my scrotum - still painful. I've gotten injections in various nerves to see if blocking them would relieve the pain. No luck. Any suggestions? The doctors certainly don't have a clue.
2037862 tn?1329699392 My range of motion has decreased, the pain has increased to the point that I need to take 3 Percocet 10 per day just to work, and it is grossly swollen with a particular lump on the outside. My replaced knee is at least twice as big as my other knee. On my one year anniversary the doctor took an x-ray, said the prostetic is in great position and did not address my concerns. Any one with any help would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I have a L5S1 herniation that after years of chiropractic therapy, I am told surgery is a good idea. But the people who are saying this will make money if I get surgery and I'm not sure if they have my best interest in mind. My back hurt for a long time but has improved to where it only hurts sometimes, for instance if aggrivate it or sleep wrong. I am scared to get surgery and don't want it to make it worse if it only hurts sometimes. What is your professional opinion?
Avatar n tn I have had several knee surgeries including a sugery back in 1979 with last surgery in 2004 a total knee replacement. I am very curious to see what has gone wrong after so long as at the bottom of the knee cap on the front, something has come loose or is a spur that seems to be poking through the skin. It is very "sharp, rough" on the outside. What could have happened?
Avatar n tn You didn't mention your mom's age, however, to normalize some of this, I was 52 during my 6 months of first-line chemotherapy and was hospitalized four times for dehydration (after surgery). At home, there were times that I couldn't walk from the living room to the kitchen without sitting down. Even after chemotherapy was completed the fatigue continued for approx. four months despite a transfusion to raise my red cell counts. I could go on and on.

326590 tn?1296066049 Three months ago while seeking medical treatment on a broken bone in knee, the Orthopedic surgeion found pain in his thigh. While following the pain he found it traveled up inot his abdomen and to his scrotum. I took him back to the PCP that same day. She examined him and didn't physically find anything wrong with the testicles, but based on my son's knee jerking reactions she sent him for a sonogram. During the sonogram they found a mass that appears to be a cyst per the sonographer.
