I spared you viewing the actual surgery footage!
I was told in 2008 that I needed to have a TKR- Total Knee Replacement surgery, & have literally limped along until now. This knee is toast & probably the reason I put it off, was because I'd had the other knee replaced in 2005- so I know firsthand just how difficult the surgery & recovery are.
Don't be fooled by this prozac voiced announcer- this is a major invasive surgery w lots of heavy carpentry (sawing, cutting, hammering)- it hurts like hell & has a huge stitch line.
But I hit the wall w pain & there is no denying the bone on bone experience.
I'm going in for a major tune up.
Also a future disclaimer for typos or incoherent pain med induced posts in the near future.
You have to take heavy duty pain meds to get through the post op therapy sessions.
Wish me luck!
