Avatar n tn My husband who is 70 had a total knee replacement 6 weeks ago and the pain seems to be intensifying rather than diminishing. He had a childhood injury to this knee, then another operation 13 years ago but is crying with the pain most of the time and has gone from ordinary pain killers to needing morphine. He has physiotherapy 3 times per week, also hydrotherapy and acupuncture, they all say he is making some progress but very slowly and keep telling him exercising will relieve the pain.
Avatar f tn On that knee, I have had a partially torn ACL and PCL (more than once), and have had microfracture surgery in that knee, as well as several arthroscopic surgeries for torn meniscus.I'm a little concerned that my kneecap may be tracking to the outside of my knee (as my other knee had that issue) and that may be why this is happening. Has anyone had this kind of bump and should I be concerned? This has been going on for about 4 months now.
