I have had a long history of patella dislocation, first started when I was 11 (now 34) Both knees would go for seemingly no reason, never any trauma to cause it they would just pop out and then in again.
Left knee seemed to calm down and respond to physio but right knee wouldn't cooperate and I ended up having TTT, MPFL reconstruction, Lateral release and 3 Arthroscopy (last one was 10 years ago). So far other than just the usual pain you get from arthritic knees I've only had the odd occasion where they have felt a bit wobbly.
I go to the gym regularly using bikes, cross trainers and treadmills without any problems and i spend a lot of time on my feet for my job and looking after my 4 year old daughter.
On Monday as I went to sit down in a chair my left kneecap dislocated. It went straight back in and x ray showed bones all ok, am in cricket pad splint and on crutches with a referral for physio.
I am concerned at what this could mean for me long term, with my history is the physio likely to just send me back to orthopaedics?
Does anyone else have experience with this sort of thing where it has been such a long time between dislocations?
Any advice is very much appreciated.
