      Hi all, I would like some advice if possible. I had an arthroscopy 10 months ago due to bursitis and was told I had cartilage missing behind my patellar. Since the arthroscopy, my knee has been a bit weak and it gives way when it’s at a very slight bend, so this is causing problems with my gait and I certainly wouldn’t feel confident enough to run. I have done lots of physio and am not in any pain with it.. For some reason it has just caused a weakness and no one seems to know why. I feel that it is to do with the fat pads as these are bigger than before. There does seem to be some possible scar tissue behind one of the portals as this was catching a great deal at first but has eased off. However, my knee is still weak!! The surgeon has offered to trim the fat pads but would mean another arthroscopy. I am wondering if anyone has had the same problem and I’m worried about having another arthroscopy for obvious reasons! And would fat pad trimming do the trick? Thanks in advance.
