In December 2015 I twisted my knee at work (I went one way knee went the other) thought I had sprained it, so struggled on for a month before going to Dr. They organised a mri scan, which showed torn meniscus on left side of knee, but had pain on both sides and I was referred to surgeons. The surgeon operated and trimmed the cartilage and I went for physio. During the physio for 3 months she couldn't figure out why I was still having pain over the bone on the right side after the surgeon said it looked normal. I was told to keep up my exercises for 6 months and the Dr would reassess the pain once a year was up, to see where we would go from there!
11 months after surgery I tripped over at work (someone left something in a stupid place) and as I was talking to a customer never saw it. Used my bad leg to stop myself from falling. Instant excruciating pain in knee and thought I'd done it again. Served my customer and had to rest for 30 mins before heading back to shop floor. I gave it a couple days to see if it would settle down but went back to the drs. Was told to take it easy for a couple weeks and if no better to go back. Went back again and they tried to test for snapped acl ligament but my muscles wouldn't allow her to dull check as the pain was unbearable. So I'm waiting to be referred for another mri scan. This time the pain is behind the knee and I have tingling in my toes. I have problems walking upstairs as I feel pressure in my knee and feels like its going to go bang. The same feeling does happen while walking too but not as often. I do still have the pain on the right of my knee over the bone too. But no one can say why.
Does anyone have any advice or had anything similar. I never been so fed up and sore!
