I was so calm before my surgery not at all nervous..   I had to wait 3 hours .. so someone could have there appendix out. ..   I was wheeled down to preop and sat there and just talked with my anthesisaologist and my OS..   and got up to go into the Doctors bathroom in the OR since  I was waiting so long.. My OS called up to the waiting room to let my parents know that he gave away his OR room due to an appendix.. .. 

Leaving the house I was up early and ready to make that long painful journey from the parking garage to the hospital on crutches..  and knew that what ever was going to come my way I would be in gods hands..

I am not sure how I will be when my left leg gets done.. or even if the right knee needs a revision years down the road..

But the fear of the unknown is surely ..  one of the tings that get you pre op for knee virgins.

Steve, I talked with a friend that is a anesthesiologist, and she told me that if they give you a correct femoral block, and block the obturator nerve,and then use a CORRECT sciatic nerve, that the pain relief is relatively good. I have read some medical journal articles, and they say the sciatic block does not add alot, UNLESS the patient is haveing pain down the back of the knee after surgery.  BUT she puts them in while the patient is asleep. NOT in recovery.

I am sorry that you received a cancellation again. IT just must be fate, of some kind. I do wish you the best of luck when you finally get to the OR. I would defiiitely ask for a PCA after surgery. AT least that gives you some control. Teresa

You want your OR in prestine condition prior to your TKR.  It should be a special ventilated room.  and the surgeon's wear these space suit masks over a construction type helment with a fan in it.      I saw the resident take the helment off after he got done glueing my knee together. ..  After that he undid the arm straps and  ... wanted me to hop on to my gurney to go to recovery room.   Which is some feat to do with both legs numb and being requested to slide over to another table after major surgery.

I had a spinal during surgery and an epidural for the Pca and also had lidocaine injected into the epidural  the day after.    My PCA pump started to beep and the nurse took the battery out and it was an hour before the anthesisologist came up.   Which is the worse thing she could have done since it renders the PCA pump non functional.

Hi, Steve,

I was checking to see whether you had new postings, to find out how you were. Judging by the long silence, you must have had the operation, and I hope it was succesful.

Please let us know how you are when you can get to a computer.

Lennie

Hi Steve

wow so sorry to hear you are still in there, really hope they get this sorted very quickly, I am gutted for you.  was not aware that you had an amputation (prob me not paying attention somewhere)

Really hope you get there soon. Thinking of you.

Take care

Big Hugs
