If injury was some years before and you were normal in between then chances of that knee injury causing pain this time is less likely. If pain is occasional and not interfering with your daily activities you should not worry. Please avoid activities which are leading to pain. Scar should not be purple but white. If there is recent change is scar you need to visit surgeon for detailed clinical examination.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I also cannot walk at all on my own for sure. I need the walker no matter what. Please answer me as of what should I do Sincerely, Karen DeAndrea

My mother has been having extreme tailbone pain and it raidiates into her left hip and leg. There are red marks where the pain is, almost like the coat of a cheetah. She doesn t complain that much and tends to not care about it. I m starting to get very concerned and need to know if we should call 911 because she can t drive herself up to the ER.
