Edited , 5 users are following.

well this is my 6th surgery on my right knee since 2017&this is the 2nd time it's been totally opened back up!My surgeon had to cut into my qusd muscle,almost mid tbigh!So now he says with him cutting so deep &high up in tbe muscle it's going to take at least 2-3 full months b4 I can even climb one step!! To say I was immediately depressed is putting it mildly. Has anyone else had this issue?Ill be on crutches for at least 4-6 more weeks!Im only 49&wasn't expecting it to be this bad ๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•

    I'm so sorry to hear this, no wonder you're depressed. I have no helpful advice I'm afraid, but hope things improve for you and this surgery will be the one that works for you. Wishing you an uncomplicated and smooth recovery and every good wish fir tge future.

    Hi there, im 48 yrs old & can totally understand your frustration as ive had 6 operations on my left leg/knee over the last 5 years.

    my leg is now very deformed with my shin bulging after an osteotomy. I was doing well until i started to get excruciating pain in the medial part of my knee at night which is almost paralysing when it happens.

    I can only say to take it one day at a time.

    It probably doesnt feel like it but you will get there. Your body needs time to heal, be gentle with yourself. You will get there eventually.
