Facing my knee pain..a very clear site for information.
Tuesday, June 03, 2014
I have been ignoring my knee pain. A few years ago I had surgery for a meniscus tear.
was told I had to straighten the knee all the way and be able tbend it so I could walk properly and not develop pain from walking wrong. I spent a couple of years mostly in the pool working on it so it straightens and bends. Ok that is done. But the knee has lots of crepitus crackling and pain. I was sure I could get rid of the pain by my exercises. Darn.
The web site had great graphics . I guess I am due to go o the doctor.
As I said I tried to treat it myself and really ignored getting medical attention. I was afraid thy would say surgery. I can't now. I need shoulder surgery and that will be hard enough since I care for my husband.
I iced it but the pain did not go away. Today I really felt around the knee and realized how much noise and crackling happens when I bend it. I was surprised. Also it is warmer than the other knee.
