3 days post op--- swelling question
« on: June 29, 2012, 11:05:45 PM »
On Tuesday I had the authoscopic surgery on my right knee to figure out what was wrong with me. Turns out there was scar tissue getting in the way of my joint and it was pinching and pulling. So far I've had no pain, besides the swelling. My knee has doubled in size and I can't really bend it. I can bare some weight but it's painful. I was wondering how long it takes for the swelling to go down and if this is normal.

Arthroscopic surgery puts stress on the knee joint because of the liters of fluid that are pumped into it. Has your OS given you an estimate of when the swelling should go down?
Have had tilted kneecaps for many years, and occasional patellar tendinitis.
