Background, as a kid my kneecap(s) used to chronically dislocate
Patient :Background, as a kid my kneecap(s) used to chronically dislocate. Eventually, I had surgery and both knees have been doing great
This morning I was getting dressed and my knee dislocated. I fell onto that leg & with a considerable amount of pain I pushed it back in.
Now I'm reading up on knee dislocation recovery and the internet is telling me to be on crutches, go to a Dr, get an mri blah blah .... Like I said, this crap was a part of my childhood, once a month at one point.
But my SO is concerned and so am I somewhat. Should I be making an orthopedic appt/be worried?
