I am a 48 year old female who had arthroscopic knee surgery 5 months ago. I started physical therapy one week later. I had to stop per my docs instructions a couple weeks later due to pain. After many tests (X-rays, MRI, CT scans, ultrasounds) nothing has been totally concluded. I had a second opinion, and the new docs x-rays determined that my knee caps are both off centered. I have had severe tightness and stiffness in my calfs (both legs). I walk very bow legged and sometimes have to use a cane to keep steady. Stairs are a nightmare. I have tried different anti inflammatories, pain killers, and shots but to no avail. I have UC so I have to be careful what I take. This has affected every avenue of my life, including my emotional state of mind. I don't know what else to do. I am at my wits end. I want my life back. Please help!
