im a 25 yr old female doctor...recently i have been diagnosed with condromalacia patallae.i have been sufffering from severe knee pain for the last 3-4 months.the orthopedics thought it could be a knee injury coz i used to workout daily 3-9 hrs a week.but i couldnt recall any trauma,anyways i got mri done which showed a meniscal tear and ruptured curciate.however there was no clinical correlation with my mri and i had all signs negatve in my clinical examiination except the doctor said i have no injury but chondromalacia patallae!
i waz given analgesics and told to limit all activities and do quads and hamstings strengtening exerciises.

How are you feeling?
You can do regular walking exercise and help you with your weight. Alternatively you can also try to drink lot of water, decrease your high calorie intake and help your health with all other means.
You can do crunches to help further.
Keep me informed if you have any queries.
