Galeazzi anyone?
« on: January 04, 2005, 12:47:13 PM »
Hi, I'm new to this site and have found a lot of the information very helpful.  I had surgery on 8 Dec on my left knee, which has been dislocating occasionally since I was a teenager (I'm now 44); episodes were becoming more frequent and unpredictable with age.  The problem is caused by alignment rather than previous injury.
I had what I gather is a fairly unusual procedure--a kind of modified Galeazzi called Galeazzi-Barrett .  My OS saw this as a less aggressive option than a Fulkerson's.
My question is, has anyone else had this procedure (or any other Galeazzi-type operation)? I'm now 4 weeks post op and would like to hear about others' experiences with rehab etc.
Thanks, Jeanice

Three weeks was about enough to drive me round the bend as well.  I've now survived 5 weeks and keep hoping someone will wake me up to say the bad dream's over.  IM me if you want to let me know how you're doing--I'd be interested to hear what kind of rehab you're doing and how you're healing.
Hope things get better for you soon--Jeanice
