Is there other testing that can be done?
Please help me..

Hi,

The symptoms of knee pain and numbness can be due to the complications of surgery for dislocated knee cap.Sometimes after the surgery,loss of full range of movement and knee arthrofibrosis can occur which can cause considerable pain and stiffness.Numbness can be due to entrapment of a nerve or compression of nerve.I would suggest an MRI knee after consulating an orthopedician.

Regards and pls do keep me posted.
