Having knee pain. Reason? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
Hello Doctor .. XXXXXXX here
Yes, XXXX ; please proceed with your query.
just wanted to know what could be the reasons.. and what should we do
it started after delivery... around 1 year before
May I know her age, weight and height?
Is the pain persistent throughout the day?
27 / 68 KG / 5'4"
no... from last couple of days... it is almost the entire day
she had a cesarean delivery
Do you notice swelling of the joint?
Is she able to move the joint freely particularly as she wakes up?
if someone hits her knee, then pain is quite unbearable at that moment
Is she having on and off fever?
How is her appetite?
Has she lost weight?
Have you seen a doctor for this problem?
no... no weight loss
not yet seen to any doctor
Let me brief you.
The symptoms that your wife report does not clearly match with a serious organic condition.
It needs to be evaluated thoroughly to understand the exact cause.
She will need to consult an orthopedician for examination. The doctor will then order for X-rays and blood test to start with.
Treatment will be based on investigation findings.
At this point without examination and investigation, it is difficult to provide a good solution.
hmmm.. sure... that makes sense
I suggest you to see the orthopedician and get her treated.
will visit to orthopedician in next few days
Hope it is clear to you
Do you have any questions?
yes, it is clear and very helpful as well
not as of now... thanks Doctor XXXXXXX

Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
bye.. thanks again
