Should I Call the Doctor?
« on: November 01, 2004, 05:52:00 AM »
I had Arthroscopy and Chondroplasty on Friday. I wasn't feeling too bad. Maybe becasue the Cyrocuff had my leg frozen. Anyways, I crutched over to the office in my apartment. I sat down with my leg extended, i just moved my leg briefly and it felt ike my knee cap was about to pop out and now my leg is hurting a lot. Is it just after effects of the surgery. SHould I call the doctor, or just wait to tell him when I go for my post op visit?

Hey !!

If your leg has been in the cyro for very long it can feel very very stiff when you start using or moving it, just like a frozen piece. And I think it was that which happened. If you get more pain or if it feels strange then I would contact the doc. But I don't think you have damaged anything by this happening.
