I had lyme disease in my left knee almost 5 years ago and i currently suffer from chronic pain in my knee. I have had 2 orthoscopic surgeries within the last 2 years to treat what is called osteochondritis dissecans, when bone is dead from lack of blood. The surgeries have tried to reapir dead bone and cartillage. I was wondering if anyone else has had similar issue as this, and if lyme disease could even be related? Do you think all the times of getting your knee drained by needles could harm the bone? If you had a doctor that didn't drain the knee properly and place the needle in correct spot could that permantly harm a knee?
