When I was about 13 mo. old my left knee became twice as large as my right. My parents took me to a doctor and it was diagnosed as a hemagioma. They were told it wouldn't bother me or be painful for me so there was no reason to do anything about at that time. It wasn't until I was 5 years old that they decided to remove it. Then it returned. When I was 11 they removed the second one only to have another show up in the back of my knee. When I was 18 I had part of that one removed. So here I am 36 years old and I still get terrible pain in my knee. Sometimes so terrible I can hardly bend it let alone walk. Does any one have any suggestions on this or has anyone else had anything similiar to this?
