surgery over and done with!!
« on: February 04, 2014, 06:18:48 PM »
So I have finally had the patellectomy!! Woke up after the surgery and the pain was that bad I automatically thought I had made a mistake. 1 week has passed and I am home with a splint on. I have to go back on Thursday to get the staples out (not sure how many I got as it's still covered up) . Its not as sore as now, but I have been keeping on top of my painkillers.

I will have the splint on for another 2 weeks after the staples come out then the hard work starts with physiotherapy. 

Has anyone gone through physio after this type of surgery, what does it entail?

Thanks in advance for any replies!!
