Hi
Your ACL is partially injured, Try out the exercises, esp.hamstring exercises, & take precautions. If by these it doesn't resolve ,get examined by an arthroscopy surgeon, & get a fresh MRI done to find out exact status now.
I am an arthroscopy surgeon in JAipur , You can contact me for the same at drsssoni@gmail.com

Hi - I am recovering well from a partial torn ACL injury which I sustained whilst playing netball 3 months ago, however in the last few weeks I have had pain in the top of my knee when pressing clutch and when on cycling machine. The pain feels like something is trapped - then it cracks painfully and feels ok again. Is this something to do with my injury??

Hello Doctor, My dad 58 is suffering from bone tb in cervical region (C5,C6,C7), he developed weakness in legs and coudnt walk w/o support. Initially he was treated by ortho who put him on 4 drug ATT and performed a minor operation of draining pus but his condition worsened after operation (paraplegic Complete motor and sensory loss in legs, no sense of bladder ) and was refrred to a neurosurgeon. He was operated again and decompression and bone grafting was performed, after one month also his condition did not improve and an MRI was taken again. Doctor said that there is a degeneration in the vertebrae which forms lower part of the graft and the screws were displaced from their position and were causing compression of spinal cord. He was again operated and the graft was removed(by a different doctor). Doctor said that due to multiple operations he has become weak and said that will keep him under observation for sometime and if required operation can be performed after a month. Meanwhile my dad has problem swollowing which was not there after 2 previous operations. He was put on complete bed rest by the previous 2 doctors but this doctor makes him sit for 5 min daily and has also said that will try to make him sit on wheel chair in some days. My question: Is my dad being treated the right way?
