Suggest treatment for knee pain

Hi when I bend my knee more than 90degrees its painfully. I have had two operations for cartilage and neither has helped. I have found a hard lump back of left knee on the left side and I guess when I bend my this presses on things and cause pain. What can it be. I have had this problem now for years.

Hello,

As a first line management you can take analgesics like paracetamol or aceclofenac for pain relief.

If symptoms persists better to consult an orthopaedician and plan for an MRI scan.

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

I fell while running last Tuesday on uneven sidewalk. I made a 5 point landing with most of my weight on my right knee cap. The other scrapes are healing nicely however, my right knee is a problem. It seemed to scab over but was weeping last night. I soaked it with a washcloth and salt water. Most of the scabbing came off. I used antibiotic ointment on it last night so it would not stick to the sheets. Today so far I have used a saltwater wash cloth to clean it a couple of times but it does not seem to want to scab. Is it because I keep bending it when I walk or run? What do I need to do? age 62 5 7 151 good health

I had MRI on knee and it came back with lateral meniscus tears and medial meniscus tears.Also signs of mild to moderate irregular degenerative thinning of the patellofemoral hyaline cartilage is present. Osteoarthritis degeneration of both menisci -lateral and medial. Prior to MRI I had swelling, not able to straighten knee and not able to walk without a cane or limping. Swelling has minimized over a relative short period (1-2 days). More movement but still very painful and hard to sleep. Doctor advised that surgery would possibly increase rate of arthritis and that best course would be cortisone shots. I am 50 years old and very active, enjoying exercise workouts. Would surgery not be the answer to clean up the tears and the meniscal tearing? does the cortisone shots not soften or weaken the cartilage?

I have been diagnosed 2 weeks ago with a costochondral separation. I am worried it s not healing back properly, as a rather large bump has formed. I don t know if this is because the bone and cartilage are healing misaligned, or if it s just inflammation.

I have front lower leg pain including knee and ankle when sitting with leg slightly elevated such as when driving my car . It goes away when standing. ( I had the cartilage removed from knee in 1952, but this is a new problem.) Thank you for your ideas.
