    Now I'm having some pain on the outside and front of operative knee. PT gave me some more quad stretches and hamstring stretches. Cold weather is definitely taking a toll. Baker's cyst is gone so can walk longer just trying to lose weight now.

    This is my 4th ACL tear in 25 years, all have been in adulthood. After this recent one it was suggested I have further evaluation for a connective tissue disorder. It turns out I have a disorder which significantly reduced the chances of any ACL surgery every working. As a result of the surgeries, I have developed severe osteoarthritis. I am in a brace and suffer from horrible knee pain. I have done visco supplements, and a genicular nerve block. I am currently in a physical therapy program and pursuing a knee replacement.
