Knee operation 2 weeks before holiday?!

Posted , 3 users are following.

I'm scheduled for my pre op assessment on monday 5th of november, with the likelihood of the op being the same week, but i go to florida on the 19th! I think its the cartlidge that is damaged meaning that it will most likely be keyhole surgery. Does anyone know if just under 2 weeks is enough recovery time for my holiday or if its best to delay the surgery???!!

    i may be lot older than you at 70 but it took me a good 6 weeks to et over mine earlier this year. if you can put it off until you come back it may be better

      the knee is still strong ive still been playing football until it pops then i can just pop it back in! yea i think you mite be right about delaying it. i dont even know if it is the cartlidge yet but thats my guess. think the walking on holiday may just be too much too soon! thanks

    Mine was booked for 2 weeks before i was due to go on holiday, they told me i wouldn't get a fit to fly from the doctor due to risk of blood clots. I would delay it. Hope this helps and good luck with your surgery 😃
