Arthroscopy for Meniscus
  Sent by Nishant (Bangalore) , 12 January 2009
  Hi, Im 25 years old software professional. While in college(some 4-5 back), I hurt my knee. After around 1 yr, I properly got it diagnosed by doctor and it came out to be Meniscus tear in my right knee. They advised me some exercises but, those 2-3 exercises were too painful. Doctor advised me to wear knee caps for whole day except for sleeping. I was at home till then. Then I came out of my home for my job and my knee situation started getting worse and worse day by day. Then, after 2 years of my job when situation got critical, I met one doctor in Delhi. He advised me Arthroscopy for my right knee. I underwent it(FOR RIGHT KNEE only)and then physiotherapy for some 10-12 days. They advised me those exercises to continue for 2-3 months, then they said it will be fine after 2-3 months. But, its almost 10 months now. My knees are better but not fully recovered. One more thing, I want to tell you that I wore these knee caps on my both knees for some 3 years. And I feel some pain, weakness and all in my both knees. I dont say that Ive followed these exercises for all 10 months after surgery. But, yes whenever I get time, I do these exercises religiously.
Ive stopped wearing knee caps for last 6 months. I feel better now. But, I want to play sometimes without feeling any pain in my knees.
I got MRI done for my both knees in Mar08.
Some highlights are:
Right knee: MR FEATURES ARE SUGGESTIVE OF INTRAMENISCAL HYPERINTENSITY WITHIN THE POSTERIOR HORN OF RESIDUAL MEDIAL MENISCUS INTERSECTING THE ARTICULAR MARGINS, SUGGESTIVE OF POST-OPERATIVE CHANGES/RE-TEAR.
Left knee: MR FEATURES ARE SUGGESTIVE OF INTRMENISCAL HYPERINTENSITY WITHIN THE POSTERIOR HORN OF MEDIAL MENISCUS NOT INTERSECTING THE ARTICULAR MARGINS, SUGGESTIVE OF GRADE II SIGNAL INTENSITY CHANGES.

Can you pls. advise how much more time will it take?
I read somewhere that it can lead to Arthritis in early age. Im very much scared about it.

  Can any one help me to find out cure for a Muscles injury (or ligament injury) in my shoulder occured 2 years back when i turned my head forcefully to extreame limit towards right to get something laying on the ground,sudenly there was a sevier pain (unbearable pain)at the right bottom of my neck for 10-15 minutes. Since then I am feeling strech or sprain in my right side neck starting from bottom of neck up to right ear. I feel presure on my ear drum also.

Metatarsal Fracture
  Sent by Kiran Pande  , 19 August 2006
  I had 3 metatarsal bones fractured on 1st July 2006. Today on 19th August also my x-ray shows fracture. Dr. says it is alright. My left foot is 25% swollen compared to the first day. The left foot was in plaster for 6 weeks. I believe my left most finger is dislocated , of which I feel the bone when I tough ground. Also the middle 3 fingers have come up a little bit. But the bloody doctors in UK say it is alright.
I feel internal swelling as well as external swelling and they have given nothing for it.

If anyone had similar incident let me know any special treatment to make it right sooner.
