To cut a long story short I had a torn meniscus whilst playing football in 2015. I ended up having surgery to repair the knee.
Months went by and I was in the gym building it back up to full strength how ever it always seemed as though sometching else was up with it? My knee clicks constantly and when I move it around I can feel all sorts of cracks going off inside which feel uncomfortable and sometimes painful.
ive been back to the hospital where I had an MRI scan. The scans came back all fine and the consultant said there was no further damage or action wasn't needed to be taken. He said I'd not left it to heal long enough.
i wanted a second opinion and so was referred to a different hospital. Again I had another MRI and yet again it came back fine, however he did note there were some markings on part of my knee itself but wasn't said it was bruising. He gave me a couple of shots of steroids and said to leave it for now.
A few weeks passed and I had the chance to play football with my mates. I managed to get through 60 minutes of low intensity football however the next day my knee was in agony. It actually took about 8 weeks to stop hurting from that.
Before playing football I was able to go out and run several miles no problem however now I keep getting a pain on the outside of my knee. The past 3 attempts at running I've gone no further than 200 yards as I could feel it hurting again.
Im at a loss as to what I should do now. Originally I was supposed to have the routine operation and within 3 months I'd be back doing what I used to. I fact I've had to retire from sport near enough. It's really getting my down and have had little help from anyone with this.
Anyone else had the same symptoms as me or can anyone give me some advice.
