@sistersinhim that is so interesting. I have never really heard of a medial release. I've only heard of lateral release. I mean, I'm sure it's the same concept. I find it interesting, because my incision is straight down the middle (for the most part) but then veers off toward the medial aspect of my knee toward the bottom. As if they were doing something over there and needed more room BTW.. I did ask for my surgical report so maybe that will give me some answers, or at least know that it is normal. I have mentioned it to the PA twice that something doesn't seem "Right" about it, and her response is "well, you DID have a very complicated revision" I guess I don't know exactly what that means. Maybe a lot of patients are OK with that response but I wanted more details.
