In 1988 I came off a motorcycle and sustained multiple fractures of the patellas. In 2007 I sustained a communted fracture of the right patella. With the injury in 2007 I could still walk, although painful. After 3 days I decided to have an x-ray and I was then sent for an MRI, which found the commuted fracture. My GP sent me to a specialist, who decided as I was walking, nil treatment was required.
Since the first accident in 1988, I have experienced pain over the years, however I have learnt to manage/block out the pain. I think this is why I was able to walk etc with the second injury.
Currently I am experiencing hip pain and right knee pain. I had an x-ray of the hip which showed calcification of the top of the hip bone. The GP decided I have a bursa (don't think this is correct).
In the last week I have done alot of walking and my knee pain is the same as the pain I experienced when I fractured the patella the 2nd time. Is it possible to get a stress fracture from walking?
Could my hip pain be related to my patella?
