Last week one of my patients asked me to treat her because she had a meniscus operation 3 weeks ago. Something went wrong and a few days later they operated her again.Hher knee is still purple-bleu and thick. It looks like there is a difference in temperature sometimes. She has a lot of pain ( she says nerve-pain) especially in the night, so she can't sleep at all. Doing some cycle -excersises seems to make it a little bit better.
I think that there is a stagnation from Qi and Blood.
She is also going to a fysiotherapist and he told her not to put needles in her leg, abdomen and lower part of her back!!! So, know she is very much afraid that I am doing something wrong. He is afraid that she get's dystrophia. I called him and he says that when I use needles that I give her more pain because the nerves are already over stimulated.
Today I tried to move the blood and Qi in her leg by only using Sp10 and Liv 2. Also in her abdomen RM6 and in her other leg Gb34. After that I did very soft Tui-Na on the leg and that did feel nice.
Do you think that I can really do something wrong in this case and that it is better not to put needles in that leg?
Can someone give me some advise about a good treatment for her?
