What causes severe pain in left knee behind the kneecap?

I fractured my right ankle playing volleyball about 6 years ago. I had a surgery following the injury due to scar tissue on top of same ankle. Six years later, I have severe pain in left knee behind the knee cap on back of my leg because of favoring the right ankle. I never felt like the arch healed properly. I don t know what else I need to do. I have gained weight because both legs hurt by end of my workday. I m a teacher. I no longer am able to play sports and just want answers!

Cardiologist 's  Response

It is necessary consulting with an orthopedist for a physical exam. Some tests are necessary too:

- a right ankle MRI test
- vitamin D and calcium plasma levels
- nerve conduction studies
- a Doppler ultrasound of the leg vessels.

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

Take care
