I had compound fracture with im rod & screws 7 years ago. The rod was removed 4 years ago & i had knee surgery for torn meniscus. I had occasional knee pain throughout the years that has since increased to a dull deep ache every other day. I lost my arch immediately after the first surgery its uncomfortable to walk long distance. While walking the knee often it clicks.
