Hi, my name is Ingrid. I fell whilst walking in 2002 and further to knee pain and swelling was sent for a MRI scan where a tumor was discovered in my right distal femur bone. I was sent in for a biopsy fearing chondrosarcoma and was diagnosed with enchondroma. My orthopaedic surgeon suggested I have this tumor removed which was done by surgery and opening up a window in my bone and scraping the tumor out. I was sent on regular xray checks every year and 6 years after surgery, a tumor popped up on xray. I was sent in for a biopsy again and further surgery with bone graft as well as metal plate and screws put in last year in July 2009. My first check 6 months later was clear. After many months of limping and pain after surgery, I have been pain and limp free for the last 6 months or so, until about a month ago. I have pain in my right femur (higher up) whenever I walk or put too much weight on leg.
Is there a possibility of another recurrence? The pain feels like growing pains and I also feel it whilst at rest. Should I have this checked out?
