This is Dr. David

results come back positive? what are the results?

burning pain can be from nerve damage from the surgery.

you may need nerve pain medications like neurontin or lyrica which could help

you may benefit from 5% lidocaine numbing patches which could help decrease pain in the area.

NSAIDs could help

icing your knee could help as well

have you tried these methods?
