HI, My knee dislocated and i need some advice.

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hello, recently about 3 weeks ago I dislocated my knee & popped it back into place.  It was very quick, it popped out of place and back in on its own.  Now my knee is starting to give out, it doesn't exactly hurt to walk on it, but it does hurt to bend it. It also feels like something is trying to block me from bending it. The pain on a scale of 1 - 10 is about a 3. I scheduled a doctors appointment today, but have I caused lasting damage to my knee by not seeking medical attention immediately? How serious is my condition and should I be worried. Thank you for your time!

    I'd go to Doctor if I were you, most of us in this knee group have had replacement knees, good luck hope you feel better soon

    Hi, my knee used to dislocate on a regular basis, it had been grating and painful for years, yet I was still surprised when I was told I needed a new knee.

    Once you get to that stage, usually it's either worn out or you have some loose cartilage.

    I had both mine replaced, the second one a year ago, and some stiffness but so much better. I wish I had it done years ago.
