Starting about 5 weeks after surgery I am experiencing sharp pain behind my knee (backside of my knee). PT has told me that it is my hamstring. How I injured it I don’t know. Is this a normal occurrance?  Anyone else experience this?  Thanks.

    Hi Patricia,

    I did have some pain at back of knee. I used to put an ice pack at the back when elevated, it helped. Eventually the exercises conquered all.

    Take care,

    Alan

    Pretty common.  Your quads, glutes and core are all atrophied and your hamstring have contracted.  Here's the exercise program plus you need to stretch the hammies...slowly...

    If you already have your ROM at 0 / +120, this will help improve the flexion number.

    Yes honey, it's normal.  I have it too.  But as of today , I have no nerve pain.  I went to Flexogenix in Greensboro, NC, and they did Nerve Hydrodissection on my injured knee.  Instant relief.  I still have a little of the hamstraing pain, and the stiffness and tightness that comes from my poor ROM, but I am workin hard on those things and I keep hearing it will take a year. Im 4 mth out.  So, I am hopeful, once again.  Im usually a Debbie Downer on here.

    I have the same thing going on pain behind the back of my knee, down my shin in the right side of my upper leg all stemming from the surgery. Even though I never had these pains before they say it has nothing to do with the knee. wrong! All we want is answers not sure why they are afraid to tell us what is really going on or who's we should even go see to fix the problem they just pass the buck

    Yes, my hamstring hurts, even after I had that procedure yesterday.  It only took care of nerve pain.
