It sure is stiff, swollen, and sore... as you can imagine from the piccy
I've had the same op, same knee, a couple of years back... recovery statistics the surgeons claim are very short as compared to the real world
getting back to strength and manoeuvrability factors - but I had one of the two cartileges torn badly and I'm hopeful I got a better surgeon this time around...
They checked for DVT, meningitus, MRSA, septacemia (and probably a few other bugs too...)
during the early hours of this morning - and even used angiography and ultrasound to check for any serious haemorraging before sending me home.
Last time I had nothing by way of bruising.
Thanks for your recovery wishes
