closed femoral osteotomy
« on: March 24, 2004, 07:12:25 PM »
Hi everyone
I'm the new kid on the block and would like some information on my upcoming surgery. I'm having a closed femoral osteotomy on June 8th. This is the seventh surgery on my right knee and is the last option before knee replacement surgery.
I would like to know what happens right after surgery and for the first week or so. They've said all will be explained in the hospital, but I'd like all my ducks in a row before I get there.
I can't take any pain medication so am looking into other alternatives like accupuncture, self hypnosis, etc. Does anyone have any experience in this aspect?
Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated.
