knee problems & questions
« on: August 20, 2005, 05:42:00 AM »
Hi, I have a question that hopefully can be answered here. First a little background info. I have had 2 lateral releases on my right knee(4/03 & 7/03) followed by Ligament reconstruction (12/04) where a Kevlar patch was sewn over the hole left by the 2nd lateral release( wrong procedure done) All 3 of these were scope and also open surgeries. The last operation was on 8/12/05( last Friday). It was a scope to clean up scar tissue and an open procedure for patella stabilization using a graft from my hamstring. My question is: Has anyone else had this type of repair done and what is the recovery time for it? This all started by me having Inguinal Hernia surgery and the doctor cut a nerve in my groin and I changed the way I walk due to chronic pain. I also have been diagnosed with Patella Alta in both knees.


Thank you,

Steve
