HELP.... knee pain continues... what to do...?
ok i injured my left knee back in June, i have had 2 MRIs("minor" tear to MCL), 5 months of PT, 3 cortizone injections... all of which have done minimal to ease any pain...
the PT worked wonders for getting my ROM and strength back, the last 2 months that i was there felt a bit like a waste of my time and money(as i was still experiencing moderate to severe pain, with extensinve ROM and jumping exercises), so when i went back to the ortho PA that i had been seeing he suggested meeting with the MD/surgeon at the practice to discuss scoping to see what was going on...
I had that appointment today and thought that i was going to be scheduling my surgery but instead i am going back for yet another 4 weeks of PT(with the addidtion of a cortisone "rub" that will be ultrasounded into my joint) he says that it is more effective then the shots, but if this doesnt work then we will do the scope... he just doesnt see how 2 MRIs could have missed a meniscus tear...
Additional Details
and there is nothing surgically that can be done to the MCL...

he also said that a "minor" injury to the MCL wouldn't STILL be causing pain after 7 months...

does this sound right or should i have pushed harder for the scope to be done now rather then to wait yet another month... cause i got the impression that had i insisted it be done i would be awaiting that rather then continuing the "wait and see" game...

what should i do? and please dont just say get a second opinion...

the Doc says that waiting wont cause any additional damage but i do competitve cheerleading and that may

sometimes the pain feels worse, and my knee feels like it wants to buckle, however everyone is insisting that structrally my knee is "ok"...

i dont go back until the 19th of March...

this is a tuff question.do you think maybe you re injured it after your pt ?is the pain worse now than before?my husband had a torn meniscus had the injections the pt,still ended up with the surgery,it was still along time before he got almost full range and movement.follow the Dr.orders and give it a lot of time,there is no quick fix.sorry.

Well you have had quite the ordeal! Most doctors will not jump right into surgery unless they feel they can help you out with less invasive procedures first. Also if you are possibly going to have surgery in the future they will want you to increase your strength prior to the surgery for a quicker recovery. Keep doing as instructed. If you feel like the pain is becoming worse or simply not letting up at all ask him if there is something you can take to help you with your physical therapy, day to day activities, and sports. A ligament does not have a direct blood supply so if it is partially torn it won't heal on its own. Keeping the muscles strong that help support the knee in the long run will help with stability. At your appointment in March if they don't feel surgery is necessary at that time ask them if they have a brace to help you with stability so you can continue to compete in cheerleading. Also there is something called the unhappy triad. Ask your doctor about it!!! This involves the ACL, MCL and meniscus! You may not have injured the ACL yet but it would probably be the last to injury in this scenario. Ask them if maybe this warrants another MRI. With an injured MCL it maybe possible that you have come to injure the meniscus. A meniscus injury can feel like a catch or like your knee may give out. Good luck!
