18 months ago I had a partial KR. twice in the last 6 months I have had to have fluid removed which was blood. I was told that I may need to have a total. I am freaking out to say the least. Has anyone else had to go through this ?
I am doing alright as long as I don't do any lifting (maybe this is what causing the fluid ?) (hence part of the reason to have had the PKR was because I wanted to be able to lift , carry grandchildren.) I am 59. Plus I run a business so the thought of having the total and being laid up as much as I here from on this site it is with the total is making me nausea. I was back at it at 4 weeks with the partial. I did very good with recovery.
It isn't urgent that I have it done but I feel as though I am back to having to be "careful" with the PKR until at which time I decide to do the total. I am still very happy that my leg is straight which I became very knocked kneed prior. And for the most part I think I am doing pretty good except when these flair ups occur.
Tomorrow I am going in for x-ray, extraction
and cortisone shot.
I know how painful the extraction is but never had cortisone shot. Is it true they are also as horrific as the extraction of fluid?
