That’s the thing. The PA I saw said he thought it was loose, the MRI said there was evidence of loosening. My OS said that he isn’t sure because of it being an all poly tibial piece that it shows up differently. He also said he understood that I was probably going to want a second opinion. But the fracture would have to heal before anything could be done.

Oh Jan, I was hoping you are out dancing and having a good ole time since you've been away for a while. I pray you have a good healing of your fracture so you can find out what is wrong with your knee.

Oh man, your right this just stinks. And I can so relate. I too had a stress fracture, of my femur. I'd complained and no one listened, until I had a hissy fit!!! Then it was like no wonder you were uncomfortable. Duh.

Wish I had words of wisdom or the magic wand to make things better for you. It is discouraging, but hang in there. Are you thinking of getting a second opinion? I will tell you no one will touch you until the year mark and they've read all of your surgical reports. Maybe be making those calls now to get things in order if you decide for a second opinion.

Great big TX hug - I totally get it.

@jboles, I decided to make a new post about recovery and took a look around to see a few familiar faces and saw your post. I am so sorry! It is so frustrating when our recoveries get hampered by unexpected things. A while back, you posted an X-ray that showed a tilted kneecap. I am wondering is maybe your alignment has been off this whole time? I’m no doctor, but I wonder if that would put pressure on other areas of the knee and could it would perhaps cause a fracture? Thank goodness you were in the right place when that happened! Sending you all of my prayers!!!
