Extreme lower outer thigh pain 11d post op l knee arthro-mpfl repair &removal of osteochondral piece-severe swelling, hard to bend 3mth since injury?

If the surgeon did a lateral release that also causes pain on outer thigh.

Although l4/l5 torn annulus, first symptom 15mo ago was rt ankle/heel pain from sitting. Was runner too. Sciatic or ankle nerve treatment needed?

Both are the same.: If after all the conservative modalities you have had and you are still having problems, then you have 2 options: 1: if symptoms are not too severe and you are able to tolerate them, then continue as you are; or 2: if numbness is getting severe ;/or weakness has developed, in the leg/foot, then you need to be seen by a spine surgeon urgently. ...Read more

50 yr old , fractured tib /fib 1.5 yr ago in ankle joint, ss & ttum removed alergic, cannot move joint to left,will this be permant? nerve damage n jt

Need more information: This will depend on what your Imaging And other studies show. I am uncertain what some of your abbreviations mean . It depends what type of nerve damage you have and whether there is bone on bone fusion which will not allow you to move the joint. Your physician will evaluate each of these aspects to help make a decision as to your best therapy ...Read more

Your 'cyst' may be causing the pain in the back of your knee ( popliteal/ Bakers' cyst ).Not sure if your 'partial' ACL injury is causing symptoms or not without a thorough examination( it can cause cysts in the knee joint occasssionally.)

Ankle MRI report - ant tib tendon bowing, tendonitis in ant tib, tenosynovitis in posterior tib, mild tendonitis  in Achilles'. Best treatment?

Cold compresses help: I have found that tendinitis frequently responds to application of cold compresses, particularly gel devices kept in a freezer which when applied to tendinitis will cut the inflammation down and provide comfort without the potential side effects of listed medications (which help as well but can cause considerable side effects). Such gel devices can be found in drug stores (OTC). ...Read more

Intense pain w/ high freq us at pt. W/in hour had pain large swelling front of ankle. Diagnosed as tenosynovitis of ant tib. Tendon damage or rupture?

Inflammation: Anterior tendon tenosynovitis means you have an inflamed sheath or covering of a tendon that crosses the front of your ankle. A good quality MRI would confirm the dx. If the inflammation continues or you sustain an injury which stresses this tendon it could then rupture.Uncommon though; posterior tibial tendon rupture much more common. ...Read more

Absolutely: See your doctor. Don't want a severe pain syndrome to develop, so the sooner the better. Pt may help, also try seeing a good hands-on osteopath to get some of the trauma out of your tissue.
