Patient : History..4 years ago had work injury to back and had left knee pain that first dr. believed to be from back. After a year different dr. realized I had a torn meniscus, torn ligament and deficient ACL. Had severe limp during this time. Surgery to repair. About two weeks ago was just walking up steps and heard a ripping sound on RIGHT knee, severe pain. Stayed off it for three days and kept it elevated. Pain is worse now. Taking 3 alleve a day. Pain is severe when on knees..and pain is more behind the knee and a little above joint. Any thoughts?
