Hey Everyone!!!
« on: September 05, 2008, 06:18:49 PM »
Hey Everyone,
Well, I use to be very faithful to this site, when I had my last surgeries, but I haven’t been on here in years. So, let me start from the beginning.  I am now 19 years old, I had a Proximal Soft Tissue and Distal Bony Realignment surgery on June 19, 2006 on my left knee, then with a following wound closure to follow in August. Then I had to get a Meniscus Repair in January 2007 on my right knee. Well, my surgeon told me when I had my first surgery, that I would have to have my right need fixed because I have knock-knee (I have had it all my life) So, he told me this surgery would be a lot worse than my first, which scares me because my first  was awful. I wanted to lose weight before I had it so I could get around much better. So, I had gastric bypass in November 2007 and I have lost 120lbs so far. So, knee has been giving me more problems, so I am going to see my surgeon Tuesday and see if it has gotten worse. I know I will have to get it fix, just not sure when, I am hoping to wait until I am done with school, but I have to see… So I if I am right the surgery I am having is called High Tibial Osteotomy ((HTO)). So, why I am posting. I am hoping to get to know some people that have had this surgery. So, if you know about this surgery and/or had this surgery I would really appreciate you telling me about it and just chat with you about it.  ;D
So, I hope to talk and get to know all very much!
Have a great day!
Jennifer
