Chondromalcia Patellae

I have just be diagnosed with Chondromalcia Patellae. They had given me a knee band to where under the patella but I do not think it is working! I still have pain and there still is grinding and popping. I also have injury to my medial femoral condyle (posteriorly). My MRI looked good except for the degenration of the MFC, patella and medial meniscus (it too is deteriorating). Benn through a month of PT. Should I keeping doing PT and wait longer or return to the doc with and let them know that no impovement has occured? Thanks!~
