Accidently more weight put on my ACL reconstructed knee..Lost balance..Din fall bt felt terrible..No pain..Took painkiller prior to dat.Nothing wrong?

Probably Okay: I allow my acl reconstructions to bear full weight afterwards (except if a meniscal repair or other ligaments were repaired) so it is unlikely that you sustained an injury by putting too much weight on your leg. If the leg swelled up or is causing pain, that would be a bad sign. If you have that , you should see your surgeon for evaluation. ...Read more

I have serve pain from my lower back down my right side through my hip and to my knee. It's agony to walk and I've been taking painkillers but no help?

Serve pain?: You've skipped the most important point, which is the CAUSE of the pain. It's a basic principle of medicine (& automobile repair): You can't fix it if you don't know what's broken. This could be a nerve, musculotendinous OR joint problem, or even a fracture. They taught me in med school never to do a physical exam over the telephone. Same thing re the Web. See a doctor & get a diagnosis. ...Read more
