Re: Another One Bites The Dust

Glad to hear you are on the mend and that all seems to have gone very well.

Re: Another One Bites The Dust

I think it did, Mario!

It's so much better since the post-surgery wrap is removed. (Three layers of heavy gauze and 3 ace wraps from toes to hip.) I could make a mummy out of all that gauze! It was so heavily wrapped to keep me from moving my knee in the first 48 hours.

Now that it's off, I've graduated from the walker to a cane in the house. Moving slow but moving well! And tomorrow I can take my first walk outside on level ground.

My followup is June 9th and the 8 stitches may/should come out then.

Re: Another One Bites The Dust

I hated all those layers of wrap they put on post op. My last knee surgery was done by my regular orthopedic doc along with an intern. They sought my approval beforehand and I agreed.

The intern did most of the work including the cuts and closing/wrapping. Somewhere along the way he damaged a nerve that affects the area for my kneecap. That area is now to this day always numb, continually feels like it's been shot up with Novocaine. I freak my wife out on occasion because I can stick pins in it like nothing, there's no feeling, no flinching.

I can live with that. The worst part was the wrap. The ace wrap was put on so tight my leg and especially my foot were beyond numb in the recovery room. I complained to the nurses and was told this is how it is supposed to be. I told them this was my 5th time to the dance and never had this type of effect in the past. I was told it would be OK and I could remove the wraps after 3 days. So home I went. The next day the pain was unbearable, not the surgically repaired knee but my calf and foot. After another 1/2 day I couldn't take it anymore and removed the wrap. Aaaahhh! Relief.... So I thought.

The next day I got up and the pain was again unbearable. But there was no wrap. Called the doc and he seemed very concerned. Come right in to the ER, I'll meet you there. So now I'm nervous. Get in and they immediately take me to the vascular lab. 5 minutes and an ultrasound later it was a confirmed blood clot in my calf. After a week in the hospital and IV blood thinners I was sent on my way. My knee suffered because they wouldn't let me walk around and PT was out of the question.

Later the doc confirmed that both issues were probably caused by the intern. I just filed under "things happen"......

This also leads to a story about the healthcare system and why things are so messed up but I'll save that for a later time!

Re: Another One Bites The Dust

Wow, John! Blood clots were what worried me most about the surgery especially since I'm over 50 and female (the two most likely groups to get them) and I just had a recent major surgery (appendix) 8 weeks before which more than doubles my chances to get one up to 3 months post surgery! So far so good, as long as my other knee holds up from its overuse I'll be ok.

Re: Another One Bites The Dust

I think I'm doing well for as early as it is....went outside for a bit and was able to go with the cane. I want to go back to work tomorrow and painwise I'm sure I can! I just wanted to be sure I'm moving well enough to do so. I give myself a passing grade.


And that's an awesome new avatar!!
