Please can anyone help/advise?
Around 8 months ago, I had knee surgery for a macerated lateral meniscus. After the surgery my knee was swollen and painful, the pain has since gone. however the swelling is still all around my knee and I have no power in my quad muscles. I can walk but squatting is impossible. I have spent the last 4 months trying to build up strength but there is no signal going to the muscles.
I have had it drained but the fluid came back. There is no signs of gout. After multiple MRI's and talks with the surgeon, he has basically said thats just the way it is and there is nothing they can do. I can't believe this is the only solution. there has to be a way that I can get my strength back to my leg. I have two little children who miss me playing football and cycling. I am slowly getting depressed and my health is suffering.
Any advice or help would be very welcome.
Thank you, Bryn
