Removal of hardware in patella
« on: September 07, 2006, 04:35:45 PM »
I am scheduled for surgery on the 21st of September to remove the hardware from my kneecap.  I broke my kneecap horozional there are pins and wire holding it together, this surgery took place May 19, 2006, so three months have past.  Cany anyone tell me as to what type of pain I will be in, if any, and the recovery time.  I am hoping that it just a day or two and I will be back on my feet.  My surgeon does really give me much feedback.  In addition, it is likely that you eventually start to feel the wires and/or pins, because I believe that I do.  Thanks for your help.
