How should I be elevating my leg? I was told not to put a pillow under my knee to elevate my leg
That's right, because if you do it like that then you are NOT elevating your leg. You need to use one of these three waysI sit in a recliner most of the day and was told not to put a pillow under my knee to elevate my leg
Yes you can get a tattoo after about 4-6 months. It might be a little sensitive but shouldn't hurt. If it does, tell the tattooist to stop and leave it till later. And no, you won't need antibiotics. Assuming, that is, that your tattooist is a careful and professional artist who always uses proper sterile equipment and techniques. We had one member who had a dragon tattooed over her knee scar!has anyone gotten a tattoo over scar after THR? How far after surgery did you get a tattoo? Did it hurt more or less over scar? And did you have to take antibiotics prior?
Honey, if you had dislocated your hip, you'd be laying rigid on the floor, screaming for an ambulance!Do you think I may have dislocated the hip?
You tweaked your knee the other day and it's already sensitive and gnarly. It might even get worse before it gets better.I’m so worried, my knee pain has gotten so much worst that I have not been able to walk all day
Are you taking your pain meds? If so what are you taking, how much (dose) and how often?
