I am 13 months Post ACL. I had severe swelling

I am 13 months Post ACL. I had severe swelling and pain up to 5 months post surgery. I had limited range of motion still at 5 months and I worked out 5 days a week 3 days PT and 2 days on my own. At 5 months I had debridement surgery and another medial meniscus repair. Since then I have had chronic pain, the Hoffas pad was still swollen and I had pulling from the knee cap and lower tibial incision. I just saw the orthopedic 2 weeks ago and they injected cortisone into the lateral hoffas pad. It felt good for 3 days and my medial pain came back with a vengeance. Now the I have a trading sensation from the knee cap into the tibial incision and I now developed a dime size painful hard lump. I have called twice and the PA thinks it’s just scar tissue I was wondering if there would be any explanation

My 14 yr old daughter who is an elite soccer player had her acl, pcl and municious repaired on may12. When she awoke from surgury she had a headache (level 7). This headache is in the frontal lobe. It pounds 24 hrs a day. She has never had a headache before. This one is 24 hrs a day for the last 4 months. All scans, mri s show nothing. Would a PET scan be helpful in helping find a reason for these headaches?

Hello! Just a quick question about the screws that were placed in my knee for my ACL surgery. I m 6 years post op and still exercising/playing sports at a high level (college-level) with100% physical capability. Recently, over the past month or so, I ve had some bad pain in leg that the ACL was repaired in. However, this pain is coming below my knee right on top of my inner-leg screw site. This is the only screw that has been sensitive to touch for years now and is now causing me pain. Is this something that will alleviate itself over time? Or is this something where I could be looking at having a surgery to get the screw removed? I ve been dealing with the pain but its hit-or-miss as far as debilitating me or allowing me to play through the pain. Thank you for any response and answer!
