      had a Left medial meniscus repair-left knee ,2002 [?so far so good on that one!] ; had Right medial meniscus repair in 2003 and now again in 2010. if i sit too long [like at a table] -when i get up, my 'fresh scars' knee hurts at the back [?hamstrings]. i didn't have this with the either of the previous med menis repairs. anyone else had this+ what's the cause/cure [i'm 3/52 post-op].
      tks.

      Sometimes there could have been a strain on the soft tissues during surgery so not related directly but a nasty side effect
      of too much tension or a strain perhaps. Best to see a PT skilled in manual therapy to release the trigger point. Posterior knee pain can sometimes be from the popletius muscle
      or from a bakers cyst.

      Hi,

      thanks reply . never thought of a trigger release .can the chiro do it -or shld the PT? [...some PTs don't seem to skilled with needles.]

      i'm also getting some pain in the front of the knee- where the medial cartilage was debrided.

      is it possible that i went off my crutches too early ...on one/no crutch just after 24 hrs post-op? ( i've also gone bodyboarding [didn't use my fins though]).

      thanks,
      Sheryl.
