I have pain in the back of my knee that goes up my thigh. I also have pain in my hip which is also on the left side. What could be the reason that is causing me all the pain?

I had surgery on my left knee July 29th, 2011. I had a torn maniskisk. I was also told I had some arthritis. They scraped away both. Before surgery I had this pain and still have it.I have also had injections in my knee.Please help me to figure this out, the pain sometimes is unbearable.

Hi Anonymous,

If the pain gets worse with activity--for example, if it hurts more after you have been on your feet for a while or after you have gone our for a run, then this is likely attributed to the arthritis. However, If you are in an intense amount of pain, it is a better idea to see your doctor for another treatment option.

Please keep us posted,
