I'm 6 weeks post op LTKR today an doing ok, taking one day at times exercising regularly icing resting and of course physical therapy, My scar/incision is had been looking good but on Tuesday my partner noticed it was reddish and a bit swollen at the base of the Incision, I made contact with Ortho Nurse who said come in straight away. To cut a long story short having burst the area a lot of puss came out and she tweezed out 3 stitches that hadn't been absorbed by my body and was causing infection. She said I'd I hadn't had it seen to it would have developed in something more serious, she dressed it and wants to check it again on Monday. Goes to show you just can't ignore the small things 😣
