In January, I was doing pivot exercises and really hurt my knee..I am 39. I noticed right away part of knee was sticking out (no longer round) . I iced and rested it 3-4 days and it got worse and I could not bend it at all.. I went to urgent care and they forwarded me to ortho. They spent about 15 seconds with me and assumed it was torn meniscus. Had MRI and they called and said didn't feel it was that and just bad sprain and do 8 weeks PT 3x a week. first few weeks were sooo hard as I couldn't bend without huge pain but pt definitely helped. They said I had patellar traction problem and it would take 6 months to fully go away. But still that "bone" or whatever sticks out has not gone down. It literally feels like someone has whacked me in the knee at all times, constant dull ache and still crunches and clicks when I swing back and forth. I went back 3 months ago and again spent 30 seconds on me and said I may have a bit of arthritis in it too so gave me a cortisone shot that did nothing but make me gain 10 pounds in 5 days! So here I am not knowing what to do....I'm depressed. Because I can't run or exercise like I used too (squats lunges etc)... and the pain is starting to go up my left side thigh again. But the main part is why can't they answer why this clearly sticks out? I wish I could post a picture so people could see what I mean....it's not round it clearly is pointed and hard like it's the femur and that's where the pain is..any guidance at all?
