My brothers leg does not move
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
I answered your questions earlier only for you to advise about his operation. We don’t need advice on that. We already have someone who has advised on this.
Expert:  Zee J replied 15 days ago.

So what is your question for us please???

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
The issue is, his left leg is bent and will not straighten. What can this be down to
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
When he tries to straighten his leg he feels pressure and tension
Expert:  Zee J replied 15 days ago.

Ok thanks

So for how long he has this condition?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Would you advise that an X-ray should be done
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
For the last 2 weeks
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
3 weeks
Expert:  Zee J replied 15 days ago.

I would advise X ray  plus MRI if needed to find out what is going on inside

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Ok can an X-ray show this?
Expert:  Zee J replied 15 days ago.

X ray are helpful but not very good in finding cartilage or ligamentous issues

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Okay.
Expert:  Zee J replied 15 days ago.

So I would suggest to get MRI if X ray comes back normal

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Okay
Expert:  Zee J replied 15 days ago.

Any other question you have???

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
No thanks
Expert:  Zee J replied 15 days ago.
