Hey Everyone, what a weekend i had. for those that aren't following me, let me fill you in real quick. I had Total Knee Replacement surgery on my left knee in March 2015, i have been dealing with severe pain 5 months post op. The majority of my pain has been in the joint and my shin bone and there are days when i cringe just looking at my stairs in the house. Thanks to Deejames for your advice, i shortened my daily walk to a mile but an hour later the pain is unbearable. So on thursday of last week i went back to my dr due too pain and swelling and he took another xray and again he said "everything looks good, the hardware is in perfect condition but i can't explain the pain your having....it will pass just hang in there". REALLY! REALLY!
So as i'm leaving his office in discuss, i get lightheaded and began sweating heavily and my heart was pounding out of my chest, i sat down in the closest chair i could find (i was at the hospital by the way) after being wheeled into the ER and after testing they found that i had blood clot that traveled from my leg too my lung....UGH. Here's the kicker guys, another orthopedic dr on staff at the hosptal came into my room and said that he saw my xray's and had some concern about the hardware on my Tibia and that may be causing my shin pain. So they kept me in the hospital and i was released on sunday(yesterday) So the advice of hospital dr and my wife we are going to see another orthopedic dr too discuss the plate that's attached to my tibia. That was my weekend, now i'm on blood thinners and i'm too stay off my leg for 5 days....good thing i work from home huh. Thanks for listening guys and thanks for your support.
