Don't like the "potential scar tissue" bit. Why do US surgeons and PTs always fall back on that old chestnut because it's so rarely true and very much so in your case! If you were going to get adhesions, they would have developed long ere this!While he told me it was “tendinitis,” it was actually “pes anserine bursitis” in addition to the potential scar tissue. This isn’t the first time I’ve had pes anserine bursitis
Another old chestnut! Anything that they can't explain will always fall back on PT!He also prescribed PT to strengthen the quad and glut muscles. Supposedly the if the muscles are stronger, it will change the way the knee rubs and maybe break up the scar tissue.
Jockette gave you the link to our article. That's about all I know, I'm afraid.
