Knee Pain: It's possible that you have a meniscal tear in your right knee based only on the symptoms you're describing. There's no way to know for sure without doing a physical exam and maybe even an MRI of the knee. If you think this is due to the way you sleep, then try changing the way you sleep and see if that makes a difference. ...Read more

I got an ACL ligament surgery in march of right knee. The problem is that the leg is still not bending at fullest and also thigh muscles are weak. Plz help to recover fast.?

Followup visit: At this point after acl reconstruction, you should have about as much motion as you are going to get. Sometimes the motion is not just limited by lack of effort, and can reflect other problems. A meniscus repair that has not healed or acl graft positioning can cause stiffness that cannot be overcome. The muscle weakness you just need to work and push through! Time for a recheck! ...Read more
