Lateral meniscus transplant help!
« on: February 07, 2020, 02:43:04 PM »
Halo! Iím having a meniscus transplant in only two weeks!! Iíve gone trough 4 meniscectomy and one failed meniscus repair. Iím only 22 years old and live in Norway. Iíve never heard of anyone in Norway that has gone trough the same procedure.
Iím very excited and nervous.. so hopefully someone can answer my questions, Iíll be very happy.

- how was the pain?
- what should I bring to the hospital? (Iíll be staying there for a couple of days)
- for how long time after the surgery did you need assistant for ďevery-dayĒ tasks?
- how long before you could walk without crutches?
- and how long did you need to wear a brace? What kind of brace?

Thanku&#128522;

Hi!

Hope your surgery went well.

I'm probably going to do this as well at some point (on the medial side), and I'm in Norway as well. Would be very interested in learning about your experience, as it's very hard to find people who have gone through this. Chances are I'm dealing with the same hospital/people as you.

Hope you are OK! And let me know if it would be ok for me to ask you some questions.

Kind regards.
