    Are you having any luck finding another surgeon to look at it? You have suffered long enough :sorry:. I can't even imagine the frustration

    I have 2 names, one in Maryland and one in Pennsylvania. I dread going through this again.

    My deductible starts over in January.

    My deductible will be much better next year, so that’s good.

    When you have a MUA, that sets your recovery back to almost the beginning again. So, count your recovery now from Dec. 13, 2018. Keep icing and elevating and resting as much as possible. In the meantime, hopefully, Josephine can help you.

    @sistersinhim I was doing ok until the incident yesterday. I just dont get it. Unless its just a delayed reaction to the MUA? I'm so bewildered as to what that popping was and why the knee has just stopped bending. It freaked me out when it happened and it just keeps getting worse. I've elevated and iced pretty much all day today so maybe tomorrow it will be a little better. Thank you for the advice. This right knee has been a real diva..worse than the left one!

    I think you should call your doctor. Something doesn't sound right and it's best to get it checked out.

    I am with sistersinhim that noise followed by intense pain doesn’t sound good. I would reach out to your OS.

    Duh! They're always saying that and it's juts stupid. If you had adhesions you wouldn't have a great ROM like that!
    Show where you had this pop and pain. 'Left side' is not explicit enough for me.

    Question,
    Does this mean that during an MUA actual adhesions would have taken a lot of effort to break and he wouldn’t have gotten 120 right then?
    This was written a week before the MUA. What would cause this much of a reduction of ROM?

    Don't be afraid to say no. They'll get over it.

    No. It means she didn't have adhesions in the first place!
    Swelling.
    That's probably inflammation of one or more of these structures Pes Anserine and MPFL pain
