... tibia (shin bone) and they repaired it.. my question is, should my knee still feel shaky and slightly move sideways if I am let's say kicking a soccer ball?
Hi wynter, my name is Liz. I worked in the OR for many years and was the Ortho Coordinator. You had a lot of work done. Did your doc already release you to play soccer? Are you kicking the ball with the injured knee, or stabilizing yourself on the injured knee and kicking the ball with the good knee? I would think 6 mo would be too early to be testing it out. The MCL is what makes your knee unstable sideways, and the ACL makes your knee unstable front to back. Yes, I would think that your knee is still not healed enouph to kick a ball. If your Dr. has released you to play sports, then I would go back to him/her and let him know your knee is still unstable. He will test it in the office and make appropriate diagnosis. Either put you back in a knee brace, or tell you to hold off on sports for a while more. I would not push it anymore until you have seen your doc. Good luck!!
