I had a complete knee reconstruction in 2003. I now have two titanium plates and I don't know how many screws inserted throughout my knee area. I went through PT for three months after the surgery. I have been walking with a slight limp ever since, no big deal. I have had pain over the years and for the first two I was on Vicodin for it, I quit taking it due to the possibility of a habit forming. Recently I had a cyst in my knee but the ER just sent me home prescribing an opiate for me which I did not take. I did take the Percocet which helped with the back pain I was having but did nothing for the knee pain from the cyst or otherwise. I have told various doctors over the years about the pain I'm in daily, some of it is debilitating. From what I have been told everything is "fine" and "normal" and has "settled perfect." If this is true then why am I in so much pain and what in the heck can I do about it? I am young, 25, and attempting to live a regularly active life....which is NOT possible with what I go through daily.
