Hi everyone. So i should have had my lateral partial knee today. I was admitted and preped. The leg also needed to be straightened. When the surgeon manipulated my leg today pre op he said it was worse, ordered more x rays and confirmed i now need a total. Worse still, it has to be custom made. So im home now, my head is all over the place and i dont know what to think?? Is this a bigger surgery? How long am i likely to wait for a custom made? Any thoughts or anyone been through similar? Thank you

Hi @Kazbon. There are few Bonesmarties who have had custom knee prosthetics. Type "custom" in the search box in the upper right to find and skim their stories. You can ask questions directly of them (on their threads) or come back here to your thread to ask questions of the Bonesmart staff. We're happy to support you as you gather info.
