No provider is giving a heads up on how excruciating the procedure is. Definitely not my "choice" in deciding and hindsight is 20/20.  Did your provider apply nerve block prior to Coolief? Did he/ she discuss all process steps ?  Additionally it makes no sense that Coolief would be needed 1-week prior to partial knee replacement , if I'm understanding you correctly. PKR would result in massive pain relief in 2-3 weeks post op. Typically back to work in that timeframe.
2007 - partial medial meniscectomy
2010 - full thickness chondral defect & adjacent subchondral edema MFC.   Direct result of stupid partial mensicectomy from 2007.
2014 - Subchondroplasty, chondroplasty, unauthorized 2nd partial medial meniscectomy.
2015 - partial failure of subchondroplasty.

I had Iovera today and it made the pain along the outside of my left knee much worse.   Now Iím worried that itís not going to do much post surgery
