I had arthroscopic surgery on left knee 2/24 after a fall on

Customer Question

I had arthroscopic surgery on left knee 2/24 after a fall on 11/5/15 at work MRI in Dec showed bone bruise & strained ligament per my ortho. My left knee is coming along OK, but am having constant & excruciating pain on kneecap & inner knee. I can't get it in a comfortable situation esp trying to sleep. My ortho just keeps saying it will start getting better now that left knee can carry weight. I don't know how much longer that I can take this pain- can't sleep, can't clean house, only took 1 shower for a whole week. HELP!!!
