I dislocated my right knee about 7 years ago now, I fell on my kitchen floor and had to wait about an hour for an ambulance to turn up, when they did they tried and better tried to put it back into position it wasn't until they got me into the ambulance ( sat upright on a wheelchair still out of position) that they got it back in. I spent 6 weeks in a splint and had numerous physio sessions afterwards.
Last year I trained and did a couch to 5K run which I never thought was possible for me to ever run again, and since then my knee has gradually got worse. I went to the doctor who sent me for an X-ray. The outcome was arthritis or the start of it. Now it's got worse not necessarily the pain but I've a lump of scar tissue on the side of my knee, if you put your hand on my knee and I bend it it grinds and I've a pinging of a rubber band sensation behind my knee. Stairs are a nightmare going up and down and bending down is becoming a problem and getting up is worse. It's now waking me up in the night too.
I'm contemplating paying to see a specialist???
Can anyone help???
I'm only 42 😢
