Could anyone offer me some advice,
I had an injury in my left knee while playing football. Sharp pain and swelling so I took one week rest and played again and this continued till 1 month (Only plays on Sunday). Pain increases during activities and subsides by taking rest. After one month I went to doctor. He did knee aspiration and suggested me to take MRI.
MRI report says
Looking at the MRI report doctor suggested to undergo arthroscopic meniscus repair. I asked doctor, Do I really require surgery as I am able to walk and climb the stair. He said, yes. So I agreed
Doctor did the Arthroscopy and removed the tore portion of meniscus. While doing knee arthroscopy doctor said that my ACL is loose and 50% damaged. Then he told me he will teach me few exercises to strengthen the ACL. After surgery, I was able to walk after 35 hours. My physio taught me few exercises (for recovery) and I do these exercises every day. Now 20 days later I am still having same pain that I had before surgery. The consultant does not seem concerned but I am getting really frustrated and wonder if there is anything I should be doing to help?
