Helen, I had a steroid injection into the knee joint space, not the fat pad and it improved my over all knee pain a bit, but then my fat pad pain seemed to be emphasised. My quads are atrophied and my calf is smaller now too also in spite of exercises. At the moment I am trying to increase daily steps and get stronger that way and just doing exercises once a day. I need KT tape around knee to stabilise it while I walk. I tried reducing my walking for a while but it did nothing except weaken my leg further so I am trying to carry on daily life as best I can. I’m also seeing a pain management physio to try and get tips on how to divert my attention away from my knee ( not easy ) I’m still icing knee after exercise. Hope you get some relief soon.
