HELP I have to have another TTT...
« on: September 09, 2004, 05:48:10 AM »

HI my name is Rose,

I am 38 and the mother of 4 and I just found out that I need my 4th knee (left) surgery. I have had 2 scopes with a lateral release and as my OS informed me that the knee aligment that I had 10 months ago was done incorrectly !!! It is the type that is not done anymore So now I can't go from sitting to standing or up/down the stairs without dislocating and loud popping and cracking. The pain is constant. I have seen 15 OSs and not one wanted to touch me. Finally found a OS that is great. He belives he can help with the Fulkerson Osteotomy. My last surgery was done to the wrong side and my OS says that is why I have so much pain. I am so not looking forward to having this all over again but I know I  can't go on like this. Has anyone else had to have this kind of procedure twice?? Big worry is having my second set of screws put in and hoping for the bone to heal correctly. Thanks, hope to chat soon. Rose
