That's a normal suture. The loop is that which went through the tissues to hold them together. It's also usual for a surgeon to put three 'throws' in a knot to make it secure. The woven material is also, you may be surprised to know, a material made from fruit sugars! It's supposed to be dissolvable but can this can often be interrupted by infection.It was of woven thread and had 3 knots and a loop
Disappearance of what? I think I must have missed something ...I had no pain or a good explanation of its disappearance.
That is simply not true! There is lots can be done.he said there was nothing he would do short of amputating the leg
How so, my friend? For what reason are you 'dead in the water'?If there is metal damage, I'm dead in the water as they say
There is much can be done even IF the bone ends are damaged. There are devices that can replace half the femur and half the tibia with a joint thrown in! Come to that, there are devices that can replace from the hip joint to half way down the tibia! A hip replacement and a knee replacement all in one. I know you don't need that but I'm just trying to tell you that anything's possible.Neither implant can be removed (my OS tried on prior surgery, commenting, "he wailed on it" and "any more force would destroy the bone ends)
