Joanne, congrats again!!!  It's so exciting to see the actual baby in your belly!  What did you find out about the gender??  Girl or boy??  Names yet?  My friend is 26 weeks pregnant right now and she was lucky to have had it easy so far....no morning sickness or any unusual problems.  Sorry you had the opposite!  I have a feeling when it's that time for me, that it will be nothing but difficult!  The end result will always make it worth it though!  I can't wait for the day when it's my turn!  :)  Matt and I keep waiting for things to all improve.  It's getting there.  One more surgery and i should be done for a long time! 

Keep us updated!  I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes smoothly for you and your knee gives you a small break at least!  Make sure to ice it!!!  Have a good weekend!

Hi Joanne,

I may not have posted on your threads before but I am sure you come across my postings on KG as I am a regular poster. Congratulations on having a baby girl its nice to hear some positive stories on KG for a change rather then bad stories about members bad knees.

I have 10 nephews and 3 neices and age range is from 19 to 2 so use to having them around me during family gatherings.

Hi,

I had patella stabilisation surgery 5 days ago. I had dislocated this particular knee 3 times and it was very lose so they tightened everything up and also moved my leg bone over and put 2 screws to hold it in place. I wanted this surgery because I never wanted to deal with the intense pain of a dislocation again. I've always had to wait for an ambulance to put it back in place and always require ALOT of pain medication to do so. The problem is since my surgery I have no been able to get out of bed because of the pain. for the first 24hours i was in hospital and had a nerve block in my leg so didn't feel a thing but now getting up and down has the same pain as actually dislocating it (although of course it doesn't last as long). I've tried changing the medication but it ALL makes me feel extrememly nauseous (i have anti nausea pills but they don't seem to help much). My surgeon just keeps saying it will get better but it hasn't improved at all yet and i don't know what to do! any advice on if anyone experience similar pain and for how long would be appreciated!  :'(
