Three Right Knees

My husband had right knee surgery in 2005 to repair his lateral meniscus.

I had right knee surgery in 2007 to repair a torn ACL.

My daughter injured her right knee last week at soccer practice. It was an accidental contact injury. Two people charging for the ball at the same time. Her foot planted and the impact was on the outside of her knee. She stood up and continued practicing. She even played a soccer game this weekend. As I watched the game, I noticed that she would rub her knee after she kicked the ball.

I scheduled an appointment with the pediatrician today. The doctor examined her knee and there may be soft tissue damage. The doctor mentioned the MCL and meniscus. The doctor said there was no tear but recommended that she see an orthopedic specialist.

I hope her knee is ok....

Your daughter seems to be a very strong athlete to endure the injury, hope she'll be fine.

Thanks everyone!

Her appointment with the specialist is scheduled for next Monday.

I'm getting pretty annoyed at how evolution left us with these crummy knees....

Best wishes to your daughter!

Knee Update: The doctor thinks her knee cap got twisted and then went back into place. Makes me queasy when I think about it.

She needs a knee brace and PT for a few weeks before she is re-evaluated. No gym or soccer.

Thanks again for your comments!
