My arthroscopic debridement surgery was last Wednesday. It went really well, a piece of cake really, compared to the TKR procedure. It has completely resolved the catching, snapping sensation and associated pain when doing stairs. I still have some minor swelling but not too much now 4 days post-procedure. The post op pain was also very light. I was a bit unsteady on that side and weak but did not need a cane to get around the house. It's still a bit sore to walk on for any distance but getting around the house is no problem. When I start going up or down some stairs, my mind is still anticipating the snap and pain.......but it doesn't come. Hurray! I just hope the adhesions don't redevelop at some point.
