TTT in 2 days!
« on: December 14, 2009, 01:12:07 AM »
I just stumbled onto this site and decided to give it a try. I'm a 20 year old female, very active, having my 2nd surgery this Tuesday, the 15th. I had screwed up both knees playing basketball when I was younger. Had my 1st surgery, Lateral Release, in 2005. Quick recovery, but the pain is still here. I'm having the TTT done in 2 days and have no idea what to expect. I've seen multiple stories on here about recovery time, use of crutches, driving, etc. Any last minute advice would be greatful.


Thanks!

last minute advice:
-set up your house for your time home with books, movies, or whatever is your entertainment pleasure
-stay in front of the pain
-listen to your doctor's orders

good luck with your surgery and be sure to come back and post about how you are doing in a post-op diary!
