    PKR Nolander's LPKR Recovery Thread

    Thanks @Layla . Still hanging in. Having some pain and irritation at the top of the incision so I have a call into the doctor. This is turning into the slog from hell. One solace is the GameReady I picked up used. Such an improvement on the alternatives. I highly recommend to anyone having...

    Post-second-op three-week checkin. I am past the two-week, straight-leg period and have moved onto 4 weeks of 45-degree ROM. I am told the reason for all this caution and restriction of movement is because the sutures tore the soft tissue and they want to ensure it heals. I made a sheet for...

    PKR Nolander's LPKR Recovery Thread

    Hey all. I am just checking in now that I am 6 days post-second-op. Things seem fine, and I am wearing my isolation brace 24/7. I only take it off to ice. The inflammation is not bad, but I am in a prone position with my leg elevated most of the day. Walking around is pain-free for the most...

    Ho folks. Just checking in. Yesterday went well. The internal sutures had indeed failed and were repaired with permanent sutures instead of absorbable this time. I have to keep the leg straight in a brace for two weeks at least followed by only 45 degree bend for a while. The pain is not...

    They didn't speculate. I feel like I followed the post-op guidelines to a T. But for some reason, they did fail. He said he uses absorbable sutures but for this revision, he will not use those. The thing is I had pronounced pain in that spot even at 3 weeks-ish and pointed it out in my...

    My surgeon is quite confident that the internal sutures on the joint capsule have failed which is what has caused all the inflammation. I am now awaiting a second surgery date to reclose the capsule. Following the surgery, my leg will be immobilized for 4 weeks then followed by two weeks of...

    Not particularly. It's just swollen. It's much more pronounced if I bend the knee. The first pic is straight leg.

    Hi folks. I have been remiss in my update duties so apologies. I am now 9.5 weeks post-op. Everything was going fairly well but I have suddenly hit a speed bump in my recovery and I am pretty freaked out. For the past 3-4 weeks my PT and I have been watching a pod of swelling above my kneecap...

    100%. I will endeavor to report the good, the bad, and the ugly. No matter what! To that end, my sleeping has improved greatly over the past few days. I am no longer sleeping with my legs elevated as I now sleep on my side again - thank the recovery gods. I am using a pillow between my...

    Awesome thanks to both of you! Axx that is inspirational. I fully intend to return to where I left off. I look forward to doing some gravel races next spring! The more immediate goal is getting back to skiing. I stopped getting my winter season pass at our local mountain a couple of seasons...

    22 Days Update: Howdy all. Things are progressing well so far. I am in outpatient PT now. I am following my surgeon's exercise regimen through the "Force" application. It updates my program every week and progresses. I still spend most of my time sitting in bed with my legs elevated with the...

    Good to hear! I agree, one has to be careful of what they read on the interwebs:). Humans naturally tend to report negatives more than positives. Thanks for sharing!
