Thanks everyone. I did see my doctor. Since restarting PT 2 weeks ago, my life has been hell - pain, stiffness, and swelling. The doctor sent me for blood work to see if there is an infection. Those results were fine. He may have me get tested for metal sensitivities. I was in a car accident back in 1983 and my body didn't like the metal, and it was all removed within 1 1/2 years. But I never had pain like this. But the doctor said that the metal wasn't in my knee joint back then. So perhaps there is some sort of sensitivity. In the meantime, he wanted me to continue PT twice a week. I went yesterday and the PT and I agreed that I should stop PT as it was only making me worse. I'm waiting for a call from the doctor to see about getting tested for metal sensitivity. In the meantime, I am so limited. Any and all activity starts a never-ending cycle of pain, swelling and stiffness.
