No: Knee surgery or back surgery per se do not result in loss of height. But with ageing the loss of the articulate cartilages in the knee and resulting narrowing of the joint may lead. To lessened height. The disc between our vertebra loses water content as we age, this leads to degenerative changes and if combined with vertebral collapse as in compression fractures will lead to loss of height.
I had major back surgery and knee surgery on both knees. Will I physically be able to have a baby?
Alignment issue...: Recovery from knee surgery is problematic enough; but if you have a 'sensitive' back this raises the level of care. Any problem that throws off your gait (or how you walk) will cause instability in the muscles and dynamic of your back. Keeping strong abdominal muscles will help counteract this problem; and as your knee recovers your back issue should walk on by. Try some heat to help your back.See 1 more doctor answer

No: Plicas only very rarely cause knee pain. When we do surgery to remove the plicas, they don't return. There can sometimes be a small amount of scar folds that develop in its place but they generally don't cause pain. If you have a return of pain, the plica was unlikely to be the cause of the original pain. Hope that helps!See 1 more doctor answer

It: It sounds like you may be dealing with moderate to severe arthritis as well as a possible injury to ligament or tendon. The x-rays and MRI should be diagnostic.

If symptoms: Are very concerning to you get checked out now. If not, consider taking some pain medication such as Ibuprofen (assuming there is no contraindication to taking this) for a few days and see if you feel better. Rest and periodic icing of painful areas can help too. It really comes down to how bad you feel as ultimately nobody can answer the need to see a doctor but you.
