BACK STORY: Surgery 4 month ago.Very bad tear.Enlarged lateral meniscus.Doc used blood clot and sutures to repair.Healed well because Im young (19).Cyst and was lateral and slightly anterior towards patella.3 scars-2 on the sides of patella, 1 large scar half inch laterally from where the cyst was.
PROBLEM: Since 2 months post surgery I noticed pain/inflammation in area just under large scar.Location is inch above fibular head and maybe half inch anterior.Basically its a bump as noticeable as my fibular head and painful when pressed/massaged.1 month ago I got an MRI and doc said meniscus was fine and the area of pain just looks like scar tissue and related complications but still not sure.After many weeks the pain and related inflammation hasnt changed and I have tried everything from weight lifting for hip and thigh muscles to stretches/massaging/icing the area and surrounding tendons/tissues but no noticeable change.Dont think its IT band syndrome cause the bump is just under the lateral epicondyle.The bump is near many tendons and ligaments and stuff but doesnt directly intersect any of them.The pain comes after leaving leg bent for too long or doing weight lifting.I played some basketball and the impact caused no immediate pain but the day after the bump was very sore.Also I can temporarily massage the bump down to semi flat but there is always a very hard structure(scar tissue or maybe bone?) still in the way which concerns me for slight tibial torsion.
