    My symptoms include quite a bit of swelling, instability, pain. I also have a couple large bulges (best way to describe them) along the incision line.

    All of this may be a result of my falling 5 weeks post op and having the wound open up. I had to have another surgery to close everything back up.

    Ow! For most of us, falling is our worst fear!
