Patient Comments: Chondromalacia Patella - Symptoms

What were the symptoms of your chondromalacia patella?

Comment from: 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: January 24

Pain radiated from the inside of my knee around to the back of my knee and up the back of my leg. Three weeks later the pain came up towards the inside of the front of my leg. It worsened as time went by and I cannot walk very long distances and was walking 2-3 miles a day before I fell.
