Meniscus tear aftermath (right knee)

Posted , 3 users are following.

I was treated for slight meniscus tear by an osteopath after whwn jumping to head the ball playing football, upon landing I just couldn't move my knee.

But now 2 or 3 months later (I couldn't afford to keep going back every week to see them) it has got to a certain point of repair but then just stayed like it is now.

My knee goes funny sometimes, I wouldn’t say it’s really painful but just feels very odd and I can’t walk on it or put weight on it. I have to pull my foot all the way to the back of my thigh and give it a little push, i can feel like a little pop/twang and then it’s OK again! I get pain to the right (your right if looking at me) just near bottom of knee too, feels like it’s bruised. Been this way for about 2-3 months now

Any suggestions as to what is wrong?

Many thanks

    I think it would be a good idea to see your GP & get them to refer you to an orthopedic specialist. It sounds like an ongoing problem which may well carry on causing problems unless it is treated correctly. As it's a really important joint, I would suggest that you go before you do any more damage.

    jietox:I’I Have pain on the right side of my knee. Starting in December. I went to Dr in late December and had an MRI. Torn meniscus on the left side of my right knee.  I was told it’s not unusual to have the pain on the right side because of a fluid buildup in the knee. I’m atDr Office getting a pre-Surgical physical. I’m having surgery on Monday the 23rd. I don’t remember doing anything that would have caused this. 

    Mine has gotten progressively worse since January. Good luck hope you can get to the bottom of your problem soon. Geo.
