Hi. I recently had a scope to see why my knee is still unstable (1 Nov). I have had 2 ACL reconstructions, medial repair, neuroma removed, meniscus removed, other scopes and cystic degeneration to the temdon(??
) over the years. This time the surgeon said that my knee is rare and he sees something like it only once in every five years (so not good!
). Not sure if he meant the HMS or the problem. However, the present ACL is fine but something is wrong with the capsule of the knee. Until I get to see him (20 Dec), can anyone shed any light on the capsule of the joint. Why is may pose a problem/instability and what kind of repairs can be done. I have a brace which stops hyper exdending, but I feel the knee give before the 0 it is set on (does that make any sense? It does not give way in hyper extension, it happens before then). Any advice would be great
