I first injured my knee August 2001. After 3 knee surgeries (Sept9/2001;Nov21/2001;May24/2002) I still get the fluid buildup in the back medial side of my knee. Doctor mentions a problem with my synovium. How can i defeat this? I am a professional basketball player and have been unable to play for almost a year. Doctors see nothing wrong on MRI's and say the knee is 'angry' How long till it settles down? When will it settle down? Desperate for help please.
