See a specialist: Partial ACL tears do happen but are very uncommon. Often a radiologist will make that diagnosis but does not mean it is correct. See a Sports Orthopedic surgeon who can give you a correct diagnosis based on the MRI and a good exam. Even if it is torn, pain is uncommon with running after 3 months. There may be more going on. ...Read more

Had arthroscopic ankle debridement & modified brostrom 7 wks ago. Feel pain in ankle when full weight bearing. Is this normal? How long?

Had arthroscopic ankle debridement & modified brostrom 7 wks ago. Feel pain in ankle when full weight bearing. Is this normal? How long?

Yes: 7 weeks is not that far out for foot and ankle surgery. Since you had surgery on something that you walk and bear weight on, pain, soreness, and swelling can occur for several months...sometimes even 6 months. Soreness is definitely to be expected at this point. I would say that any remaining sharp pain should begin to improve during the next few weeks. Also, make sure to see your surgeon too. ...Read more

Arthroscopic knee symptoms to remove 2 loose bodies w/ minor chondroplasty. Weight-bearing postop & 50cc blood removed bc of swelling, but painful now. Why?

See below: It is not unusual to have pain after this type of procedure. Progressively it should be getting better. You're weight-bearing orders are as instructed by your orthopedic surgeon who at the time did your operation in particular your chondroplasty will give you those weight-bearing instructions . Physical therapy as an outpatient basis to improve strength flexibility and range of motion while you're limiting your weight-bearing is recommended. Follow up and follow your orthopedic surgeons treatment guidelines good luck thank you. ...Read more

Does a ultrasound of your knee show cartilage and meniscus tear?

Does a ultrasound of your knee show cartilage and meniscus tear?

Not the best test: Ultrasound is not the best test to evaluate the meniscus and cartilage in the knee. Technically, with the right transducer and a trained operator, ultrasound may be able to see these structures pretty well, but it is likely to miss anything but major abnormalities. Mri is the best test to evaluate the cartilage and menisci. ...Read more

I had an ankle sprain 6 months back. It still pains if i standand walk for 5 minutes. The MRI reported torn talocalcanealligament with partial tear of post.Talofibular ligament. Whatshould i do?

See specialist.: It is not common to have tear of those ligaments. Typically if the posterior talofib is torn, the anterior talofib and calcaneaofib also torn. The talocalcaneal lig also hard to tear. This may mean very high level ankle sprain and a foot/ankle specialist is needed. ...Read more
