    I ha surgery January 2010. I am in more pain now then before the surgery. I regret ever having it done. Dr. says everything looks good, but the knee shifted to the left. That causes pain and pinching with every step. I have to use a cane and have lost the ability to straighten my knee and ROM has decreased every month. I had surgical manipulation after surgery and over 4 months of PT every year since the surgery. I'd love to find out if anything can be done

    Since your doctor thinks everything is fine then you'll have to find another one. Try to find one that specializes in revisions or complicated cases. They're out there but you have to search.
