About 4 months ago I hyperextended my knee while playing badminton My knee then would not bend properly when I walked and it was painfull to bend. I then saw a sports docter and he diagnosed it as a LCL sprain. I was on crutches and a knee immobilizer for the first month. I went back and the pain was still there so he sent me to a physical therapist. I went there for a month and it didn't get any better or worse. So I went back to the docter and he ordered an MRI. The MRI showed a tibial plateu bone bruse and a bruise on my femur. So the docter put me back on crutches for two more weeks. Then I went back, and it still hurt to bend. He then said he was contemplating a meniscus tear. He sent me to another docter for a second opinion. I went there and the 2nd docter then ordered an arthroscopic surgery. I hd my scoping done on May 25th and they didn't see any cartiledge damage but they took out an orthoarthritis lump.
It has been about a month since the surgery and it is still painful to touch, run, and squat. I can bend it now with minimal pain but why is it still hurting on the lateral side? Please if you know give me some advice.

Sorry to hear your knee condition but we are not sports medicine specialists. May be you can explain to us what is a orthoarthritis lump? Good luck with your recovery. Please take it easy!!!

Yeah, I know but I didn't know if anyone had any idea...
An orthoarthritis lump is a clump of orthoarthritis due to my meniscus injury.

I think it will be good to get few opinions and more scans before you do anything. Its a knee we are talking about. At the meantime.. try not to move ur knee so much.

It will take a while for your knee to fully heal. It could take up to a year for it to heal. I was still in pain a month after my surgery and even months then after. So just be patient and talk to your doctor about it. He'll probably just recommend some stuff for the pain and swelling.

my injury is not same as urs but i think it takes time after you are operated. ask your doctor if you need physio-therapy sessions to help bending your knee. Starting physio-therapy at the right time is important (but only if you need it.)

That's hyaluronic acid. How many intra-articular injection did you have?
