I feel your pain…. and mine, just going through the laborious procedure to get mine cleaned out, had lots of trouble years and years ago, 2 sets of cartilage removal and a detached ligament, and a complete dislocation, have had periods since where all was well, but mostly hobbled and popped and banged my way through life until 3 weeks ago and something really popped, lots of swelling, its kind of getting a bit better but stairs are the real struggle, but its going down them I cant do…
GP is sending me for X rays he mumbled something about arthritis, I am no doctor but would think at some stage it will be a given due to the damage ive done, but an X ray, WTF, be surprised if anything shows up on that unless its floating bone bits, I got lumps floating about in there I can feel, both knees have had at least 1 opp they have great big scars on em, why cant he just refer me, get em open and have a look??
Feel marginally better for a bit of rant… Thanks hope yours clears up.Posted 9 years ago
couple of things they could look for
sunrise x-rays will show wear to the kneecap/femour
also if youve had long term promlems calcium deposits can form in the tendons/ligaments essentialy small lumps of bone that show up floating on the x-ray
my brother “poped” his knee sidesteping out of someones way. He’d managed to pull the tendon straight off the bone taking a chunk of the bone with it!Posted 9 years ago
I am hoping things have come on a long way since I did all the damage, I realise they have a procedure to follow, but I have no doubt I have something in there needs cleaning out, what I am really hoping for is that techniqes on ligament repairs have moved on and there is something they can do to tighten both knees up, if they can do that, it will slow down the wear and tear on them.
I detached the ACL that took a bit of bone with it, your brother tendon going must have been awful, they must have had to root about to find the end of it so they could pin it back!!Posted 9 years ago
