Knee Hardware

Posted by Jeanne Barrett on June 4, 2010 in Uncategorized

My newly revised knee sans hardware continues to thrill me with little discomfort other than mild incision healing itchiness. I had, previous to hardware removal, begun to accept  that recovery would be forever limited by pain that I now realize was associated with the hardware to an extensive degree.  Since the metal is no longer needed for bone stability, I am so happy that I pursued surgical removal!

I had also believed that the hardware consisted of delicate little wires and pins, despite x-rays that indicated otherwise.  As depicted in this image, the metal in my knee was actually rather large and clunky.  No wonder this caused me so much pain and inflammation!

Now, I can hope to proceed with strengthening toward full activity (morning runs!!!) with an improved condition of self!
