I had surgery to repair my meniscus and 4 months post op am still experiencing much of the same problems. I have had a cortisone shot and had a hyaluronic acid shot. Nothing seems to be helping. My knee still swells and hurts when I walk and it is quite painful to go down steps. Any suggestions?

  • Hello I am the same as you, its only been 2 months since my surgery and I still can't walk right, and the knee still hurts and buckles, I am going to PT 2 tx a week.I had meniscus repair early Sept. 2010 and my pain is worse, Therapy did not help and I cannot stand for more than 10 or 15 minutes. Now I have been told I need a total knee replacement due to osteoarthritis. I'm just not ready for another surgery.

Hi all, I would recommend seeing your physiotherapist for appropriate treatment following either knee arthroscopy or total knee replacement. Appropriate manual therapy, rehabilitation, rest from aggravating activities and progressive knee flexibility and strengthening exercises are some of the vital components for an optimal outcome. Some of you may be interested in checking out the above links for detailed information on knee arthroscopy or total knee replacement. Hope that helps and good luck PhysioAdvisorwww.PhysioAdvisor.com
