Yesterday I received my copy of the letter the consultant surgeon has sent to my GP, re last Wednesdays return. I have fluid which he may "aspirate" depending on the ultrasound due within the next 10 days, I have wasting of the quadriceps muscle (due to large haematoma), I limp, the "alignment of the knee is satisfactory" - huh! I want it to be perfect - not satisfactory(!), but the worrying part of the long letter is that, & I quote - "I have explained the recovery period varies, & in some people the discomfort & pain may even take 12-18 months to fully settle". Oh Lordy - I cannot stand this for THAT long! Does anyone on here have problems for as long as that?
