Got the date for my knee cap repair
« on: August 24, 2011, 06:28:17 PM »
Well I have the date set for my knee cap repair.
I will be on Oct 18th
I can't wait to get it done and move on with my life.
I had LTKR on the knee in 07 and then in 08 had some arthoscopy surgery on the same knee to relase the knee cap and get it back in the grove.
So I am hopping that this is the last time I will have to have surgery on that knee.

What are they doing to the kneecap? This is the TKR knee? Replacing the button on the kneecap or actually shifting things around?

Good luck - are you UK based....sounds like it with that wait for your op!

My OS is going to replace the button and cut off some of the knee cap that is rubbing against the metal of my TKR. I have had both of my knees replaced. But the Left knee has been giving me problem since I have had the TKR>
