I got lateral minucus tear in july 2011 while playing football. I underwent arthroscopic surgery in my left knee in September 2013. Before surgery, mri report said lateral miniscus tear with cyst in my left knee. After surgery in manipal hospital Bangalore, my life became hell and I faced knee pain, stiffness, bike riding knee pain, could not stand for 30 min continously, could not use indian toilet, prolong sitting impossible on chair etc etc. None of these problems I had before surgery. Before surgery Dr. Claimed that I can play football within 6 months. After 6 months of surgery that is on apr 2014 I did mri which said no fresh tear with cmp condromalecia patella level 1 and ra blood test negative with vitamin d correction needed. I lost all hope with my surgeon and believed that only for money he did surgery to me and ruined my life. I had tendocare medicine from september 14 till apr 15 and simultaneously homeopathy. Now my condition is better as compared to aug 14 case. I believe it's cos of homeopathy medicine. Past one month I m doing isometric knee strengthen exercise including vmo at home. These physiotherapy I did post surgery for 3_4 months but as pain was still there so I stopped these strengthen exercise but I re started them last month as my injured knee thickness is half of my correct right leg. My condition is better now say 5/10 but prolong sitting in office or rainy season cold increases pain n stiffness. I feel burning sensation, stiffness, not able to bend knee fully, pain around knee cap, can't walk for say 30 mins without pain, uneasiness and pain at the bottom of knee cap. Now my only remedy is to apply knee pain killer oil and exercise and take homeopathy medicine. I wonder if I can be equally fit as I was before surgery. I doubt if surgery was needed for me at first place but that was already done 1 yr 8 months back. I request a orthopaedic doctor to advise me as in what is my knee problem and how I can get rid of it Thank you.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. As you had lateral meniscus tear with a cyst, if you had symptoms correlating with your mri findings, then there is a valid reason for arthroscopic knee surgery which was done in your case to excise the cyst and balance the meniscus. Also fresh mri revealed no tears in your knee structures, so I think the surgery was well done and your mensicus was balanced well. So there is no need to crib about it at all. I think what you lacked was a scientific approach to post operative rehabilitation which is poorly understood in our country. Anyway now you have improved and your symptoms are due to chondromalacia of knee, atleast that is what you have written. Again for this physical therapy is mainstay of treatment with strengthening of quadriceps, stretching of other group muscles - adequate calcium and vitamin d intake - daily brisk walks for 2-3 km per day in morning - you should actually avoid indian toilet, sitting cross legged till the time you have pain. - you can use a gentle anti inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or one which suits you on a sos basis for some time. Let me know in 2-3 weeks time how you are feeling, so that we can discuss and take your case forwards. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I would advice you to take an ultrasound therapy physio session for your legs. You may be having a condition called as shin splints which is very common in atheletes. You could aslo do a hot and cold fermentation for your legs at the site of pain and you will get relieved from that pain. Please wear proper fitting shoes so that you get good support while running.

*Avoid bending forward while working on lap top or for any other work. Don’t sit continuously working on laptop etc. Get up periodically and move around. *Restrict bike driving as far as possible. *Don’t carry laptop or any load on your shoulder. Carrying very light loads equally with both hands is better *Sit straight so that back bone gets proper support. A dining chair is better than a laid back sofa. *You can use mustard oil for massage which is good in winter season for relieving pain. Eucalyptus oil is also good *Soft bed will not give proper support to your back bone. Hard bed with thin mattress and thin pillow is better. *Get yourself tested whether you have spondylitis problem. Homoeopathy has a good treatment for this without adverse effects. Consult privately (Prime-Rs.149/)

Avoid bending in front. Postural correction- sit tall, walk tall. Extension exercises x 15 times x twice daily - lying on tummy, take left arm up for 3 seconds, then bring it down, right arm up for 3 seconds, bring down. Bring right leg up, hold for 3 seconds, bring it down. Then right leg up and hold for 3 seconds and bring it down. Repeat twice a day- 10 times.
