Rotational tibial osteotomy
« on: August 26, 2012, 01:40:34 PM »
Hello I am a new member and just had a rotational tibial osteotomy on Aug 2oth. I am non weight bearing for 4 weeks until an x-ray can be done to determine if the tibia has healed properly.Each and every time I get up to  use the washroom my patella shifts horitontally because of all the fluid build up and swelling. The brace which my doctor sent me home with only stabilizes my tibia. What can I do so that my patella does not shift every time I get up? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

I would love to hear more about your osteotomy. Looks like that will be my next surgery and I have no idea what to expect.. My foot rotates out over 30*.. How was your leg before? And where did they do the osteotomy on you? Low, high, middle?? How are you doing now that it has been a few months since the surgery? Hope I am not being a pain.. I am just very curious and very nervous as this is a new one for me. Thanks!!
