Last week i had a knee arthroscopy and removal of the lining to help with the inflamation in my knee. I had no complications, and doc only had to remove a small amount of lining. 3 days ago i had to go walk in as my dressing was full of blood, good job i went, one of my incisions had opened and was bleeding, nurse put new striristrips on and dressings.. My swelling has gone down can walk ok, but just certain movements are very painfull, and feel like i have to click my knee to straighten it. Before op doc said i couldnt drive for up to 6 weeks. But i feel i wont have to wait that long....Iam seeing doc this morning iam going to ask him if could drive sooner.. (also has anyone had a VERY BAD sore throat after op!!! with the tube down your throat, god i felt worse with that i think... Could anyone share their experience, on how long recovery was for them...Its been 9 days now...
