Hello all with PVNS. I too am a sufferer of the disease however I have high hopes that mine is the localized type in which it will not reoccur. For those of you that have posted on here with reoccurring PVNS I highly recommend you read this article about
it because it requries someone with seriously good skills to get rid of it completely... if not, if could require an entire knee replacement. READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE.
I have to say that I am seriously hoping I don't get it again! My surgery was last September and I am still recovering, I did 3 months of physical therapy (which got expensive) and now I'm working out on my own. Squatting down to pick things up have become a serious task for me and me knee normally hurts for a few days afterwards. Does anyone have any positive news about
fully recovering from PVNS surgery with no pain in the joint? And if so, did you just have to work hard and deal with the pain until the muscle reformed? I would love to hear from someone who had PVNS in the knee and has fully recovered so I can have a little bit of hope. Most everything has gone back to normal except if I were to squat or sit on my legs (causing my knees to bend all the way).
