Going to Surgeon Today

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I'm headed to see a knee surgeon this morning at 9:30 a.m. Could I get some vibes that he can do something for me? I'm in constant pain and can barely walk now. It's just awful. And many of you know I also have a bad back and the knee doesn't help that any because of the way I walk when I can move.

How'd you go?? I hope it's something that can be easily fixed

I had a knee arthroscopy a few years back - it was day surgery, it took about half an hour I think, and I walked out of there (slowly and gingerly).

Thanks everyone, for all the vibes. I had to go back to work after my appointment so I couldn't report to you all until now. I saw the surgeon and had an MRI and another Xray. My knee isn't bad enough yet, to do a knee replacement but there is scar tissue in there and fragments floating around from when I took that hard fall on my knee back in March. So I'm having surgery on August 25th to clean up the scar tissue and fragments etc. and I'll be off work for 2-4 weeks. The doctor said this doesn't always work but I say it HAS to! I'm in so much pain and can barely walk most of the time. Pleeeeeeease.... keep sending me vibes that the surgery works! I need this to work really bad!

Thanks everyone. As always, the support here is awesome and appreciated a lot! I'm really tired of my body falling apart and having surgery! It seems I end up having some kind of surgery every 2-3 years and it's getting old! But I'm willing to go through this if there is a chance it will work. It really sucks not being able to walk without pain.

Thank you for all the vibes and please keep 'em comming! Even though I've had multiple surgeries, the older I get, the more nervous I get. I keep feeling like someday my luck will run out. But Lord, I hope not.

Good luck with the surgery. I would make sure you follow the docs recommendations for recuperation after this surgery. Neil had his knee re-scoped about err 7 -ish years ago. The doc cleaned out the arthritis and floaters and he hasn't really complained since.
He takes glucosamine and has for year which could help or not.
If you need PT I would look into it too.

That makes me really hopeful! Thanks so much! I have been doing pool therapy and imagine it will continue for a while after the surgery. I also promised the surgeon I'd lose at least 20 pounds.
