Anyone have knee surgery before? - January 24, 2010, 10:20 PM

Just curious if anyone has had knee surgery before. My wife has to get it eventually after a crash last year, but so far all she's hearing is horror stories of the after effects. Anyone have any good or bad stories to share?

I had an ACL replacement and cartilege clean up.
If it's an ACL type of surgery, make sure you get a continuous positive movement machine (CPM). It keeps the knee moving without having to use your muscles. Mine was turned on all day and all night when I first left the hospital.




Also....some sports surgeons use an anesthetic ball for pain management. It's a plastic ball filled with paid meds with a tube the runs directly into the knee. It's continuous until the meds run out.

I had a VERY short and completely painless recovery time and no issues thanks to those 2 things.

Good luck to her.

I played my last year of college lacrosse 6 months after surgery. I still get real tight and pain after a game or long car ride with minimum leg movement.

Rehab rehab rehab

Invest in a stem machine and never miss a rehab session. Start building the leg muscles around the knee now to minimize atrophy.

He's in Texas but I went there for my surgery after I was not happy with what many doctors here were telling me.
I highly recommend talking with him. He was rated one of the top 5 in the country in orthopedic surgery.
Not all doctors are created equal!

This is how I found him. I was on thumpertalk a lot before my accident and knew of him from there.

I had surgery last April. Swam like a mofo afterwards... Been snowboarding like a champ this year pain free for the most part. Have her just rehab right and follow the PTs orders and she'll be fine.

Had microscopic knee surgery a couple years back, worst part....all the fluid in the knee. Every time I moved you could hear it splashing around. Pain wasn't that bad, but the splashing was a little messed up.

what all is being done. ei: meniscus, acl,mcl,lcl, etc... also depends on where thy retrieve new ligament. Mine had to be taken from my hamstring. The miniscus is the painful part because those are your soft pads between bones.

what he said - Spirit, I have fairly extensive knee surgery experience as both an athletic trainer back in the day and from my own surgery. PM me details or I'll happily talk to the wife.

Had my right knee worked on I think 7 times now, left once. ACL tear about 22 years ago, and a scope to clean it up at that point.. rehab followed.. then scoped again, more rehab, then reconstruction, then many more scopes.. I agree with everyone else though.. REHAB REHAB REHAB.. It really is not that bad, just do not let her take it easy, or try too much too soon.. if you hurt it during that time, you will have issues down the line, which is where I am daily..

Yeah, make sure she doesn't skimp out on rehab. She should probably also look into post rehab options. It will definitely improve her quality of life. I deal with clients that cut their rehab short or don't take it seriously all the time. That's why they come to see us unfortunately and its much harder to fix things then. Good luck...

I'm getting 5 injections in my left knee starting tomorrow, to try and prevent a 3rd operation on it. First was to clean cartilage and remove a cyst from under the kneecap, 2nd was for torn ACL last year. Still having problems, and my doctor has said I have a "degenerative condition" with the meniscus. Whatever that means - I just want a new knee

I blew my knee out in HS back in 99 and just got it fixed last year. Yes I went 10 years with an ACL-less knee. I wore my cartilage out because my ACL wasnt there to keep my knee joint tight. Anyway my only advice is to got it fixed asap before you wear it out. I kick myself in the butt cuz I waited to long...now I have arthritis and I have to favor it but I can still run and do all that stuff. To be honest I had a pretty evasive surgery with a cadaver ACL replacement and microfrature (drilling holes in the bone of the joint to promote new cartilage growth). I was on crutches for 6 weeks, this was because my cartelege had to grow back. If its just an ACL replacement you can pretty much walk out of surgery. Im super active, healthy & fit and I only went to rehab 3 times. I did all the exercise and joint movement myself at home without machines. I have big leg muscles for my size so I still had alot of muscle mass, even after atrophy. This surgery is def alot easier if your healthy. Again dont waste time get in there. Its a very smooth and painless surgery (for me at least).
