Knee replacement outpatient

Common Questions and Answers about Knee replacement outpatient


Avatar f tn I have had my knee washed before. It's a realitivly easy procedures. It's an outpatient procedure known also as a scope. It will hurt. Plan on six weeks to get back to normal. However if you did indeed tear your menisus it may never feel like before injury. I just had a total knee replacement and wow does it still hurt five months later. But a s scope. Three days to two weeks of bad surg pain. I walked same day without my crutches. It's not that bad. More scary than hurt.

93210 tn?1287457826 Anyway, now my ortho doc (unless the knee greatly improves) is talking about a total knee replacement in about a year. My other knee is in desperate need of a total because of severe osteoarthritis that has chewed away at my joint so much that I'm bone on bone now. My knee is constantly swollen and from time to time has about 60-70 cc's of fluid drawn off of it. And of course the pain is almost constant and mostly severe. Sorry for the long bio.
Avatar f tn I am wondering about the claims that in some people it can restore cartilage and help patients avoid knee replacement. I have had regular prolotherapy done, but it did not help me. Thanks.
Avatar f tn Sept 17, 2010 I injured my knee, May of 2011 I had a partial knee replacement. I had tripped at work and my doctor had to go in with the camera and clean it out. He did noticed that my knee cap was grinding down. He did not realize that he stretched the band that holds in the meniscus. So in Oct. 27 of 2011 I had a total knee replacement. During physical therapy I gained the motion back rather fast, I was asked to slow down.
Avatar f tn I had a total knee replacement on my right knee on 10/22/09. I am 44/female. I have had 8 operations on this knee prior to the TKR. I have had bad knees and ankles since I was very young. Was still very active despite this. Played ALL the sports in high school college etc. So in general understand knee pain / how tough PT is and have developed a high tollerance for pain. Had the TKR on a Thursday...left hospital on Sun....
Avatar m tn My range of motion is only 80 and it is 8 weeks since my knee replacement. Been in a rehab hospital, home physical therapy and now outpatient physical therapy 3 times a week. I have pain and stiffness every day. Taking Advill and Tylenol since my prescripton finished and doctor won't renew it. Every day I do my exercises and spend time on a recumbent bike. Anyone have this problem?
Avatar m tn He needs a knee replacement in his left knee and had lower disc problems about six years ago but hasn't had a problem with that since. His leg is numb from mid-calf through his foot and his primary doctor believes it is the peroneal nerve compressed. He is having no numbness in his thigh and no back pain at all.
Avatar m tn I went back to see my knee surgeon today. This is what he told me. "I see a cement fragment. The space is too big between the bones, and you MCL is weak and stretched." "But you can have diagnostic arthroscopy, or you can not." I said, can I wait until the summer? He says, "Sure, you can wait as long as you like, but in the mean time you need to do weight bearing exercise to strengthen your muscles.
Avatar m tn A few years I had a total knee replacement done - 6 years on am still in horrific pain found out ortho doctor made a greave error by trapping some nerves - have had them released - more pain then finally cut no more nerve pain but while the operation was done the plastics doctor noticed I has soooooooooooo much adhesions he took a lot away but I am now left with just the pain - burning pain all I can describe it as is it is like walking on raw flesh the pain it is shocking how the hell can I st

358486 tn?1294779988 Although not a new procedure, Hip arthroscopy is becoming more and more common. Just like arthroscopy of the shoulder and knee, Hip arthroscopy is performed through small incisions using a camera to visualize the inside of your joint. Through several small incisions (about 1 centimeter each) the surgeon will insert a camera into one incision, and small instruments through the other incisions.. The nice part about hip arthroscopy is that it is much less invasive than traditional hip surgery.
1602878 tn?1304339616 I am also headed for some outpatient surgery this coming Monday- April 28th due to scar tissue growing under my hardware of my one year old total knee replacement. Will have this done at Mayo in Rochester. Thanks for praying! God is in control.
Avatar n tn I have been on 8 to10 10/325 norco for almost 3 months now due to a blown out knee, followed by knee surgery. It's time to get off of them and I know that I will have some serious wd's with that daily dosage for the given length of time I was prescribed. I pick up my suboxone tomorrow, but how long do I need to wait from my last norco, to take my first suboxone tablet? I heard you cant take the suboxone right away or you will go into immediate withdrawals?
Avatar f tn @@) so she sent me to a breast surgeon. He agrees and, a week from yesterday, I'm going in for outpatient surgery to remove the ducts from my left nipple. He is 95% certain that it / they are benign but he is removing them anyway just to be safe. I have never had surgery of any kind. I've only had twilight sedation once but never been put completely out. So that is a little concerning but that's not what truly concerns me.
Avatar m tn He walked in to outpatient fine, went to the OR and was placed on his left side for the procedure. He has this done every nine months and has never had a problem. In post op he kept telling them his left leg was numb from mid-calf through his foot. He is now on a walker and has been diagnosed with foot drop. He had lower back problems about 7 years ago which cleared up and has had no further problems. He does need a knee replacement on that left leg.
Avatar f tn I've got a serious problem ahead of me. My knee replacement is giving me bad problems. Blood clots and a newly torn ligiment. I went to my doctor today for the clot and he told me he has to go back in and repair the ligiment. The bleeding is causing clots under my knee cap. I'm so scarred. I'm less than 30 days of no oxies. We scheduled surg for next week. I am scared out of my mind when it comes to post surgery pain management.
Avatar n tn I had a unicompartment knee replacement on Oct 17, 2006. I am a Home Health Nurse I fell in a patient's bathroom on June 8 '07. After several months almost a year since I was injuried the MD who did the replacement - I was pain free at 7 weeks with -5 degree to 180 degree ROM - told me at the last visit to "suck it up" regarding the severe pain.
Avatar f tn An example, every female member in my immediate family on my mother's side, aunt, first cousins, nieces, sister, mother, grandmother, great grandmother ALL have bad knees. Everyone of us have had to either have a knee replacement(s) or are looking at one in the future. Some of our knee issues began in our mid-twenties. These incidences are too strong to be a coincidence.
Avatar n tn I'm also getting the titanium screws, pin an plate out of my toe, prior to the knee surgery. This is minor, outpatient, compared to the knee. And, the block for the last replacement gave me the sensation a house had falling on me. I was glad to get that tube OUT. STRESS. PAIN BITES.
Avatar f tn The doctors seem to think that I have begun feeling the effects of arthritis and are talking eventual hip replacement as soon as 10 years from now. Is there anyone to whom this has happened? If so, how have you gone about physically making the best of it? What courses of action have you taken (cortisone, arthroscopic surgery, etc?) I just want some guidance from someone who has been through it, not a doctor telling me what "could" happen. Thanks.
Avatar f tn My surgeon told me regardless of the outcome, I can expect to be on Synthroid, or some type of hormone replacement after, but that's all so far. My surgery is currently scheduled as a Same Day procedure. Any thoughts on what to expect post-op? Pain? Difficulties sleeping? Any tips on being home and more comfortable? How long out of work? I will be asking my Dr. all of these questions, but I'm really looking for patient to patient education. Thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn they want her to come in for a back surgery and a knee replacement ( so she says, been telling me this for almost a year) So I guess what I get from that is if she is that bad off, then why is nothing being done. Like in my case...I had the pain, had the MRI and had the surgery. Still the same now as I was before the surgery but I also have doubled my weight, etc since being on the pain meds. Anyhow...
Avatar f tn I just had a total knee replacement in may to get off these awful pills. That's over five months ago and I'm still hurting. Now ill hurt even more and get sick.
Avatar f tn He said that he will be checking my script record now and throughout my knee replacement process to make sure he, and only he, is giving me prescriptions. The best part was he asked me, honestly, what do I need for pain now. I told him and he gave me close to what I asked for. He told me to wait longer between dosings to lower my tolerance before surgery. He said that he would make sure that I get proper pain releif before during and post surgery.
Avatar n tn I have had 14 knee surgeries, including a total knee replacement and my knee hurts more than ever. I have scar tissue stuck in my joint and have no range of motion. I have run out before my refill date and feel like I am dying. Not only with the withdrawal pain killing me - my knee hurts so bad I can't stand it.
