well opperation done and dusted have had microfracture surgery drilled loads of holes in knee.
see utube for info......
if you are having this done.
So all in all ive been got up to nearly 2 miles streight walking on a fractured knee realy speaking I THOUGHT IT WAS SORE DOC. didnt show on mri but i knew it was thyeir funny thing is walked and to the pain and at the point of going in the knee was bending great and their was no pain in it just the ankle realy didnt feel streight and still doesnt so im none load bearing for 6 weks now but heck the warm feet have come back with a vengance agin so i will probably get back to cold again in another 4 weeks ahhhhhh hat cold feet I WISH NOW I HAD GONE WITH WHAT I HAD. microfracture surgery dosnt alway wrk cos it relies on the drilled holes in the bone to bleed into the joint and creat new cartlidge. this is dependant on age and how it fixes its self due to the bleeding. it tries to get a reaction from the blood to form clots in the bone But this is not always as good as the old cartlidge you had. at anyrate i still have the little nodules in my dips and pips on finger. AND ITS A WORK OF ART GETTING UPSTAIRS USING 2 CRUTCHES AND NOT LOAD BEARING ON KNEE (WHILST BALLANCING AND APPLE ON YOU HEAD)
PIC SHOWES 3 DAYS IN SWELLING DOWN A BIT (BUT I DONT THINK HE WAS MUCH GOOD AT DRAWING BLUE STREIGHT LINES DO YOU)
