Hemi Cap on Friday...scared!
« on: January 31, 2011, 04:05:32 AM »
I am having a Hemi-Cap Patella-Femoral replacement on Friday.

I am scared crapless!

I have had both knees scoped with no issues, other then it didn't' help so much.

Doc said the recovery was twice that of a scope. 

I was up and moving the next day, really moving well in a week. 

He said.. well maybe no so much!

I have 1-2 days in the hopsital after, as our restroom is on the 2nd floor.

Any things to do before? ideas?

i am confused! i was in the clinical trials for the hemicap and it is not used on the patella at all. it is a titanium screw inserted into the chondyle to fill a hole in the articular cartilage. is that what you are having done?
