What can I expect?
« on: October 19, 2005, 08:51:02 PM »
Hi Folks

I'll be having a LR and medial plication procedure next week.  I'd a LR earlier in the year and I suspect that, when I was knocked out, they took me outside and ran over my leg a few times with a very large truck (in other words it hurt like hell and had some truly spectacular bruising!!).

Will it hurt as much this time?

I cant answer your question but when I have had my surgeries, I would always come out with these huge bruises. I finally figured out that my strange bruising all the way around my thighs was from the tournaquet that they put on before surgery.
good luck with your upcoming surgery.
