Hello All,

Feb 9, 2015 I had  DeNovo articular cartilage allograft transplantation / Fauklerson-type Osteotomy, I am full weight bearing now, but I still have swelling to knee, just wondering if anyone has had experienced this, the doctor tells me that with both surgeries combined, it can be a 6 month full recovery, i do not have pain like i used to have, but there is some cracking when I start walking in the knee...I dunno, this is my 4th knee surgery, but the others were just arthroscopic.

I had my DeNovo surgery one day after yours and I still have some knee swelling.  I am full weight bearing but still cannot walk without a limp due to pain during the end of my stride.  My doc and PTs haven't been alarmed that there is still some swelling in the knee.  I believe it's pretty normal given how invasive the surgery is.

I had my denovo knee surgery 3 weeks ago this Thursday. I am on CPM machine & got to 120 degrees pretty quickly. I'm non weight bearing until 6 weeks. The knee is not swelling & feels pretty good. I've stopped all pain meds. The worst is the crutches & walker & scooting upstairs. I also developed Atelectasis
And Pleural Effusion after surgery. Still on oxygen. I hope this surgery works!  I'm too old to do this again!! 55. I was a runner. My doc told me no more.
