Physical Therapy: Without knowing the reason for the surgery, i believe that physical therapy would be beneficial. Advil/aleve, tylenol, (acetaminophen) tramadol/narcotics (in rare cases/low doses) can help with pain. Topical nsaids (voltaren gel) and steroid injections can help too. Your knee pain may represent nerve pain or pain due to poor circulation (pad/peripheral arterial disease).

Let me understand: 2 MRI nothing remarkable, or unremarkable, it makes a lot of difference? Let us say you did not any finding on the mri, some else could happened, the pain in the knee for reason, checked out with other specialist? Let us say there are finding on the mri, what are these finding let me know please?
