52 years past injury

Posted , 4 users are following.

When I saw the Dr he asked if I had injured my knee. I told him no. But, when I got home I remembered an injury to my knee that happened 50-52 years ago. I was hit in the knee and required stitches. Should I have mentioned that? It was so long ago. I see the Dr again in a month after a month of PT.

Thanks.

    While at this point it probably wouldn't make a big difference, you never know. I would certainly mention it at your next appointment.

    Hi Victoria. I feel you should call his office and let him know everything that happened back then. He may put some restrictions on some of the exercises that PT. has planned for you or vise versa.

    I saw the PT today. He thinks it's either the meniscus or cruciate ligament problems. He said there was inflammation under the patella. He told me he was going to rush me through PT so I can have the MRI.

    I'd doubt that anything would come out of an injury 50 years ago. Don't worry
