I have constent knee pain . I had arthroscopic knee surgery back in April for a lateral release . Since then I still have constent pain and swelling. I have had several injections from cortisone , synvics, and 4weeks ago with euuflexxa injections. The pain is so bad that I have had to resign from my job because I am unable to work. Any suggestions?

Thanks for writing to us.
A severe pain after a knee arthroscopic surgery can be due to a neuropathic pain. If all the internal structures of knee are normal then you can consult a neurologist. Gabapentin and pregabalin can be of help.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
