Had my ultrasound this afternoon. The radiologist ( a senior one at the Nuffield, although I am NHS) showed me why I had swellings & was still in pain after 20+ weeks. The knee is not aligned corrrectly. There is a visible "shelf" (his description) that is rubbing all the time on the soft tissue, which is inflamed. So no fluid (is that a relief or not?) - but all the excercising/physio/massage in the world is not going to correct this alignment. I see the consultant on the 30th March, but I have lost ALL confidence in him. His letter to my GP, when I went back to see him with the swellings & pain, said the "alignment was satisfactory", & at the time, I mentioned in this forum, I would rather it was perfect. There is no way I can live with the constant pain, & I dread to think what I'll have to go through for correcting it. Has anyone else had this happen?
