Knee Pain post Hip Surgery
An_253218 posted:
10weeks ago, I had surgery on my hip ( 2rods/10pins), as a result of being struck by a car while riding my bike. While the hip appears to be healing as scheduled, I did wind up getting a blood clot behind my knee. My knee and ankle are 2-3x the normal size, and doesn't appear to be getting any better ( its not getting worse either). All my focus is on my knee, where I get debilitating sharp pain if I try to extend the knee or put any weight ( even the littlest) on it. It is right in the front of the knee.

The pain i have been told is from the swelling, which is causing tendonitis. I'm not so convinced. In my follow up xrays i am going to have them xray the knee.

I never thought the problem i would have from hip surgery is my knee. I will say that they did set my leg a bit openned up, so its not entirely straight.. I have been told that PT will stretch it back into alignment.

Anyone go through something similar?
