I was supposed to have total knee revision surgery 5 days ago on my left knee because after I had the knee replaced last year I tore my PCL and the new knee wasn't stable anymore. They were prepared to replace the entire implant but after opening me up and exploring around, they were able to find a different spacer that actually made my implant more stable. Long story short, instead of having to have the entire joint replaced, I only had to have the plastic spacer replaced. I'm already walking around without a walker or a cane. I am so tankful they didn't have to saw on any bone and that I don't have to go through months of excruciating pain during recovery. The muscles are sore but that's to be expected because they still had to open me up and flip my kneecap out of the way as if they were replacing the whole implant. Anyway, just had to share my good news. I'll update my progress in a couple of weeks. Wishing everyone a quick and pain free recovery. GOD BLESS!!
