Re: Meds before surgery

My instructions were 10 days before to stop taking them. I switched to tylenol, but that didn't help much.

Re: Help- Sharp knee pain after Elsmlie Trillat

Thank you! It is not as bad today, just stings every once and awhile, so it could definitely be me getting my feeling back.

Help- Sharp knee pain after Elsmlie Trillat

I had surgery yesterday on my left knee, a TTT. Recovery has been going great up until about 4pm today. I fell asleep between 2 and 4 with ice on my knee. When I woke up, I had sharp pains in the front of my knee. It feels like it is stinging. I thought it was from the ice (even though I had clothe ...

Re: Elmslie trillat

That is how I found this site as well. I am scheduled to have an Elmslie Trillat on my left knee on March 22nd. I actually have never had any dislocations. Instead, I have a lot of pain in my knee due to my legs being twisted so my knee cap is rubbing incorrectly. I am a teacher and have to be on my...

Re: Time for surgery... TTT and LR

It sounds like you are very well prepared for your surgery. I am having my TTT done March 22nd, so we'll be recovering around the same time! Do you work full time? If so, how much time are you taking off of work? My doctor suggested 3 weeks, but I teach so I don't have a lot of days to use. I'm taki...

Am I rushing things?

I have been having knee pain since 2004, mostly in my left knee, due to miserable malalignment. I went through 4 weeks of intense physical therapy with no change, and then my knees were both causing a lot of problems around Christmas. Early December I talked with my doctor on whether I needed a dero...

Re: Not sure what to do...

Thank you for all the great advice! Between these replies, PMs, and other threads I have been reading--I have a growing list of questions for my doctor. I went to him originally because I thought my only problem was my hip dysplasia...but now I have a whole slew of problems to investigate. My only p...

Not sure what to do...

I am new to the board and stumbled upon it in searching for more information. I'm slowly discovering all of my intricate problems after suffering from knee pain for 5+ years. I went to an orthopaedic doctor in October that diagnosed me with bilateral hip dysplasia, with my left hip being worse. He t...
