    Hospital stay

    Put my skinny's on at 5 weeks as was out for a meal round some friends - they acted like a compression stocking round my operated knee. Was fine for a few hours but probably no more. After about 8 weeks i could pretty much get away with them on all day - just depends on the swelling. You will...

    [PARTIAL KR] Patella femoral recovery'

    Hi , it was an Avon patella femoral , my surgeon actually said he preferred using the Sigma but that has been taken off the market I think for pat fems. I really think it’s more to do with the skill of one with the knife rather than the metal work. Only thing about patella femoral they used to...

    Return to office job timeline - question and venting!

    Just to add that even if you can find some sort of set up to allow you to ice and elevate your leg the pain meds can effect your judgement. My job involves fast decision making with long term impacts .. I really would not of wanted to be making any significant choices when on the meds and then...

    [TKR] Rockgirl4's Recovery---already full of surprises.

    Must be honest I was all over the place for a few months after any surgery I have had ..skipped a couple then erratic .. took a few months to get back into the rhythm. Think is more related to the stress on the body rather than blood loss? Sure an advisor will know more.

    [PARTIAL KR] Patella femoral recovery'

    A patella femoral replacement they replace the groove of the femur and resurface with s metal part / they also take the back of the knee cap off and join a plastic ‘button’. So the plastic button then runs in the metal groove ... think only about 1 percent of replacements are patella femoral :)
