:( I injured my knee in gymnastics back in 98.I did a front flip and landed on a straight locked out leg. When I landed I heard a pop in my right knee. I tore a ligament and hyperextended it. In 99 I had orthroscopic surgery they cut and shortened the IT band cause the hyperextension was putting too much tension on it.About 3 yrs after I had a lot of pain and clicking in the knee. No one could figure out what was wrong. I have been to pt, had cortizone shot,MRI/X-Ray/anti-inflammatories,checked for meniscis tear/bursitis... u name it I have done it. There is so much pain I can't even walk on it some days. Around the IT band area it is so tender u can barely touch it the pain keeps me up at night and rainy weather just aggrivates it.It clicks when I walk and there is so much pain it is unbearable.I am in pt now they r doing ultasound and iontopoherisis injecting dexamethozone.I am also taking Glucosamine.I have been fromm doctor to doctor and noone can figure out a diagnosis. If I'm having this much pain at 25yrs old what is it gonna b like when I am older? PLEASE HELP!!!!
