In November I had surgery on my knee. It was scoped and a 3 inch incision was made. The doctor found that the lateral cone of the miniscus was torn, the hamstrig tendon was split and he removed some bone. I think the bone was called Fabella. I could be mistaken. He said that the bone was inflammed and shaved it down/removed part. This was all after the MRI was normal and 5 weeks of physical therapy. After surgery everything was great for 3 1/2 months.
About a month ago I started to have increasing pain. Just noticed one day it hurt and pain was progressing daily. The doctor says that everything is fine again, just like before the last surgery. Also, I have had some numbness in my foot. We did a MRI, nerve test, and bone scan, all came back normal once again. I am in the process of getting a second opinion, but was just wondering if anyone has had similar problems and what was done about it?
I tried to do some research about the bone that was removed and can't find anything. Maybe I am wrong on the name. Also, presurgery, you could feel the tendon on the outside of the knee as two parts compare to the other knee as one. The doctor repaired it the first time (it felt just like the other one after surgery) and is now saying that there are two tendons there.
I am not in anyway trying to discount the Dr., but any research I have done says otherwise. He said the tendon inserts to the biceps femorus?
I can barely walk right now and just want it to be fixed. He told me to be off work for 3 months for it to heal, but that there is nothing wrong.
Any help is very much appreciated.
