%d comments
  • and mine swell off and on no matter what I do. I try not to take too many meds and just ice and elevate a lot.

  • I get Euflexxa injections.

  • Xxxxxxx Yzzzzzz what food intolerances prevent pain meds? I ask because I have some food intolerances too

  • I'm with Malika... Mine swell a little or moderately unless I try to do something I shouldn't. When I had my arthroscopy, my PT was surprised at how long I needed the e-stim machine. :)

  • Have you tried liquid forms?

  • Why did you need to have a certain amount of cartilage damage in order to diagnose CMP? It seems your docs didn't do a very good job of figuring out the issue in a timely manner.

  • doctors always just told me to take anti inflammatories and tape my knees. it was so frustrating because i have been in so much pain for so long. i finally have an orthopedic surgeon who is helping me.

  • Very sorry to hear that. I hope your surgery goes well.

  • thank you. it has been postponed for now, because my dr found that my acl was disintegrated and bound up behind the patella, so he removed that first. seeeing him again on the 15th. waiting is torture, but i know hes being strategic and doing one thing at a time.

  • My knees haven't been a normal size in years, I think of my swelling as normal now :)
