    Have you been to doctor ? I was fine well before 16 wks just stiff and a bit achy and odd , very little swelling ever . What does surgeon say ? Hope it improves because it’s very debilitating when in pain

    Hi Jean I’m 18 weeks post op and still very swollen and painful,  I can only bend to 50 degrees and also have two dents in my knee.  My physio has written to my surgeon to ask for an MUA  so fingers crossed he will agree when I see him on the 25th July.   Would you be able to ask for an earlier appointment?  I have been going for acupuncture and it does help with the inflammation and pain.  Hope you get some answers soon.  Take care x
