Microfracture surgery with allograft

Posted , 4 users are following.

Has anyone had microfracture surgery with allograft transplantation done? I had it about 16 days ago still completely bon weight bearing. I hate it. How long does it take to heal? Ended up in hospital from pain meds impacting me for 4 days. Really wishing i had not done anything at this point. Just want to cry.

    I had microfracture done, not sure if I had the allograft,,maybe I was lucky, I had no problems,,and it gave me another two years before I needed a TKR, which was always on the cards.

    16 days is not long, give it time, it will help you.x.

      Never wore a brace, used a stick for about a week. Weight bearing the same day But as I say I don't know if I had the graft.

      I didn't realise it was quite a big op, and carried on as normal, I was used to pain and had had a few arthroscopies.

      Then I twisted my knee coming down the steps and rang the hospital,who told me in no uncertain terms that I had to rest.

      Got back to my normal self, with pain a lot better, fairly soon.

      I had my second TKR last August, both knees done and glad they are.

      They are stiff at times but if and when you go down that route, it is 100% worth it to get rid of the arthritis pain

    My deepest sympathies for your pain. I had the TKR surgery for both of my knees, but I believe no fractures. But it definitely sounds like something you want to work with your surgeon on and follow his/her instructions closely so as to know what to do to relieve the pain and not make anything structurally worse.

    I hope for some relief for you soon.

    God's blessings and healing. Deb.
