Hoffas Fat Pad Impingement

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi everyone,

I'm in desperate need of advice.

I'll start from the beginning. I have Hoffas Fat pad impingement in both of my knees, ive had the condition for 11 years. I'm at my wits end. Ive had five lots of physio, seen countless doctors and been on every pain medication going. Ive got two children and every day is a battle with pain. Please can someone offer advice or suggest a way for me to ask for a different treatment that will actually work.

    Hi Samantha same as John I have never heard of this. Is there any chance you could see a private consultant. It's so horrible to hear of someone in such pain and no-one is helping.

    Please let us know what risk condition is.☺

      Sam that sounds painful. I personally don't know the solution but say on this forum because someone will and you won't feel so alone.

      What have you had done so far for the pain

      Not a lot to be honest, all kinds of lain relief, five different sessions of physio, ive had my knee taped over and I have been given a knee support. I tried searching on the forum but I cant find anything relating.
