Had my pre op assessment today. I am due to have knee replacement at end of month. I'm only 46 so surgeon reluctant to do TKR. Hoping to do a partial but until I'm in surgery he doesn't know if this is possible and may have to do a TKR.
The nurse said today they may do it under a spinal block with sedation. Would rather have a general.
What type of anaesthetic did people have.
After surgery did you have a drain in knee. Said a possibility of blood transfusion. Said maybe need urinary catheter. Anybody have this?
Also what type of pain relief did you have?
Hope long were you in hospital?
Sorry for all questions. Just want as much info as possible.
Thanks in advance. X
