I have done everything my surgeon told me to, did all the months of PT and home exercises. I still cannot walk down stairs normally. In September he told me to stop PT and home exercises as well and he said he said he would see me in December , my one year anniversary. In 2 days I was so swollen and stiff it was like I was losing what little I had gained.
I got a second opinion. The surgeon asked if I had had a physical o my knee since the surgery, I told him the other surgeon rarely touched it. He pressed o it, had me lift it bend it. Then all of a sudden he put one hand on top of the other and "cracked" my knee. It was so quick and forceful it shocked me. He never said he was going to do it, really scared me. I was so startled I didn't even ask why or what he did. He suggested trying to drain fluid from it. Taking blood work, nothing that sounded like it would explain why I was 10 months away from my surgery and still in so much pain. He wanted to see me in December.
The next day my knee felt different. It felt loose, the swelling came and went, I had spasms. It was and has been getting worse than it was before I saw him. I waited a week and called and told them I wanted to see him and get an xray. Has anyone ever had this done to their knee? I am afraid he really screwed it up. I see him Monday and wonder what to ask? What did you do? Why is my knee worse?
I do NOT want another surgery. Any ideas greatfully appreciated.
