  • Acl

    Meniscus trimmed up in May and now acl repair February 1st. I’m scared even though I know what to expect.  Is acl that much different from trimming up meniscus. I’m asking about pain and recovery period. Ortho doctor says 6 weeks non weight bearing? Anyone had both surgeries?

    I've had 2 tkr surgeries in the last 3 months. All went well for the most part. The last one has me dealing with a hematoma and edema above and beyond so recovery is taking quite a bit longer. The end result should be the same but it's slow getting the swelling down. My issue is I'm just...

  • Knee revision timing

    I had the 1st knee operation of a 2-stage revision for staph 8 weeks ago. I'm not sure I'm ready for the 2nd operation because I am very, very weak. My considerable pain is probably not relevant. For those of you who had this grueling procedure, how long was it between your 2 operations?

  • Dr says arthroscope needed what to expect?

    Well, I did the PT and had the steroid injection. No relief from either. The surgeon now says I'll need a scope or have to live with the pain. I could live with it as of now, but I know it's only getting progressively worse and at a faster pace. So, surgery is scheduled for next month. My question...
