quick update on operation
« on: January 12, 2005, 12:58:34 AM »
They found windshield glass inside my knee tissue. The surgeon pulled out the large piece that showed up on the x-ray and found smaller shards of windshield glass that the x-ray did not reveal. Was a quick operation of 25 minutes with local anesthetic to my left knee and leg. That was on Friday.

Bet you are now relieved that this is over with.  I can not believe that they did not give you an x-ray in the ER to begin with.

It certainly was no rock as they had first thought.  

Good luck to you and hope that your knee will heal quickly now.   ;)

I am begining to think my MRI did not show  all.  I am feelling like my ettalla has gone haywire as well as my medial meniscus and my MCL.  The amount of pain Iam in is unreal and Ihurt in the middle of my kneecap and on the inside of my right knee and where my MCL is has just gotten worse waiting for sugery.  How bad is recovery if this is pre op.
