I have just finished reading post from so many, and now I am concerned.
Heres my story
In February, I had a total knee replacement and was doing wonderful. Unfortunately, I fell just two weeks after surgery. The pain was the most intense pain I had ever experience. I was under the carport and luckly my daughter heard me scream. Ambulance was called xrays taken , and was given an injection for pain. Xrays showed no damage to the knee replacement. Two days later seen my surgeon. More xrays and the same conclusion, knee replacement is good. My knee was so swollen and blue, but I went through 2 months of pt.
Went for another check up with my surgeon. After seeing how swollen my knee was, he drained 90 cc of fluid (pure Blood), 2 days later he drew off 100 cc the 2 more days drew off 120 cc.
At this time he could tell I had damage to my quad and surgery was scheduled immediately. It was much worse than he thought when he got in there but repaired and immobilized my knee for 6 weeks. Now, back to PT. but only for a month. I was never stretched, never weights, just a few simple exercises.
At this point, I am completely devistated, I am doing exercises at home but my knee is so stiff.
Does anyone have a suggestion
