During PT after torn ACL recon I felt pulling (same feeling as when my hamstring graft was taken) behind knee during flexion exercises.What can it be?
Shin is still numb 12 days postop of ACL recon and meniscus trim, very bruised, sore, stiff is this normal? Foot also gets really hot.
Somewhat: Bruises, stiffness, soreness all very normal at this stage. Hot foot and numbness are not normal. However, depending on the incision location, the superficial skin nerves (saphenous most common) may have been cut which will lead to a permanent numb patch on the lateral side if the knee. No big deal. Hot foot and swelling could be a sign of a blood clot. Go see your surgeon and ask these question. ...Read more

The co-pay is nothing if you consider how much it would be if you leave something untreated. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

I try using a pillow to raise the back of my sore heel but it still doesn't stop the burning pain. I wonder if Achilles tendon is involved. Walk OK.
Good question: Achilles tendonopathy tends to produce an enlarged, tender tendon (particularly sore when squeezed). Also, small nerve branches supplying the heel can become irritated to cause a burning pain. One question: why are you taking clonazepam? Underlying disorder? See your doctor for exam. Details of the physical should help diagnosis, and this will help treatment. ...Read more

Get examined!: Achilles' tendons that become 'inflamed'( tendinitis) often respond well to a trial of NSAIDs( ibuprofen) , rest from activities which are aggravating them, and sometimes a small lift in the shoe you are wearing that decreases the 'stress' on the tendon. Other conditions need to be 'ruled out'( 'pump bumps', bursitis , partial tears, etc.) so see your ORS or Podiatrist for evaluation. Good Luck! ...Read more
Took cipro (ciprofloxacin) for 2 wks w/ tender achilles. Then 2 doses levofloxacin stopped a week ago, feel like all tendons are being destroyed. Veryworried pls help?
Tendinitis: It is true that Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and Levofloxacin can cause tendinitis, especially in the Achilles tendon. They also put your tendons at risk of rupturing, so I would recommend avoiding strenuous physical activity for the newt few weeks. The tendinitis should go away in a few weeks at the most if you are treating it. Rest, ice, compression, and elevation is best! ...Read more
