I had 3 ops on the right knee, 1 ACL and 2 menicus tears, the knee recently started swelling?
Quick background: 3 ops on the right knee, 1 ACL and 2 menicus tears. I have played soccer since I was 5, I am now 46 years old. I exercise the knee daily, play table tennis and soccer once or twice weekly. The knee recently started swelling. I treated it with RICE. Swellings gone. Now very localised pain top of patella and a finger width towards inside of knee. Very painful when attempting a run and sore to the touch. Walking only occasional pain. Occasional slight give way. Lots of grinding, crunching and crackling from the knee. Any ideas pls?

Pain you are describing is typical in medical meniscus tear (anterior horn) + ACL partial tear, I need to understand the nature of the 3 surgery first before I can advice on next step ( did you have meniscus repair or removal ) , ACL reconstruction? Due to partial or complete tear?
Please explain the exact nature of surgery, what was exactly done?
Also upload the pre-operative scan reports for better understanding of your condition.
Get a latest x ray done and upload the report..
My opinion is you are still having a meniscial injury again, so a MRI is needed, in addition i suspect chondromalacia patellae ..
does your pain increase when going up or downstairs?
