Brief Answer: Yes Detailed Answer: Hi, I have read your query. Yes, injury from the left leg cause the damage to right knee. Because weight of your body is now beard by right knee as your left abductor was injured four years ago. You must consult your doctor for your injured left leg abductor so that your right knee and left knee can balance the weight of your body. If your present condition is left unattended then along with right knee, right hip may also get in involved or get damaged causing severe discomfort. I hope you have get your answer. Thanks.
