My surgery last May was so intense and I had been through the wringer so I definitely needed to go to PT. Any my surgeon had instructed me to keep going. But, I saw someone different today who did a thorough exam and told me some things that I had never been told before. And gave me some new stretches to do. He thinks quite certainly that my medial pain is torn cartilage (he said meniscus) and that my patella is riding so high, it is not going back into the "groove" it's just stuck. (I knew I have patell alta; my other knee has it too.) Even when I lie on the table and squeeze my quads, my patella doesn't budge. Also.. I have poor extension. My other knee hyperextends quite a bit, and my operative knee can barely get straight. So we have some things to work on. May not fix things entirely, but I am hoping for some improvement, nevertheless.
