@Taoquest , you and others that have btkr are rockstars! It sounds like you are making great progress and I wish you continued healing. I went to the acupuncturist yesterday and other than needling and red laser therapy, he used this machine that generates heat and ultrasound massage. He went around the outer areas of my knee with it and swelling went down dramatically, tissue loosened up and that outer left edge which has been numb started to come alive. I think you are onto something w heat and light pressure!
I am going next week for my 6 month check. Still hurts when I get up from a chair and when I use the stairs. Also still some numbness and heat off and on in the knee. I am going to ask about acupuncture for the knee. I started to do the side to side lunges again. It only is painful going from right to left? Nobody has recently mentioned magnesium supplements and magnesium gel. I think both are helpful
