In general, I've liked this surgeon's demeanor and straight talk and I will try to not dwell on that one comment, but hopefully he is indeed well versed at dealing with infection if that is what it proves to be.Oh my gosh @RubyWhitesocks , I am sorry for you! I hope it clears up and your recovery starts again!
Your surgeon's comment was quite arrogant, very off putting. My surgeon is so awesome, I couldn't imagine home putting down another's work. He usually leaves me laughing
Anyway...be well and keep us posted!
thank you, I needed to hear that encouragement, today was a rough day. the wound/ incision area seems to be a little less bright angry red today, but it is still warm to touch and painful and tight. So much so that it had me in tears a couple times today before it was time to take my pain med, but part of it is just the emotional toll of feeling like I'm not doing as well with knee 2 as I did with knee 1. I just need to know for sure about whether or not it is indeed infected and what the game plan is at that point either way to feel like I know where I am going.Well done getting knee done - knowing what the process is, that takes courage, but you know the eventual outcome will be well worth it! Just having the "balking" in muscles, etc. is far better than the pain of bone on bone because you know it means healing. You're a trooper, for sure!
