Knee pics, post-op (*warning* not for the light of stomach)

I have no idea who wants to see gross knee pics, but oh well!!

Original thread:
Nervous (knee surgery on Monday!)

Overall, I'm super happy with how it's healing up! There has been minimal swelling (though it's obvious that it is swollen) and I get to take those bandages off on Monday to see what the incisions look like.

Jan 19, 1 day post op, taking the dressing off:

Very nice, Allie. That looks painful . Sending icepacks and vodka your way in hopes that it heals up nicely and the doc is wrong.

The incision sites are still very touchy... I've sent the cat flying a few times for almost jumping on it haha...

I know your not hard liquor, type of gal, so the wine is headed your way as soon as I know your type of perferred brand.

lol I have to be off pain meds too.. as far as I know, they don't mix well....

Honestly? I think it looks really good. No where near as much swelling as I would have expected, and the incisions are fairly small.

I'm glad that the surgery went well, and that you are doing good. I have to go to the doctor asap to see whats up with my knee unfortunately. :( Jumped off my unbroke horse at the beginning of the month, and landed on the inside edge of my right kneecap. Couldn't move or feel my lower leg for about 5 minutes after I hit the ground, and even though the wound itself is almost healed, its still swollen, and does burn on the inside when I move too much. I'm really concerned about what the doctor is going to say though. :( I wish you speedy healing, and hope that everything comes out well when all is said and done.

maura, I'm super happy with how it's turned out! I'm so glad the swelling appears to be very very minimal, and I'm excited to actually see the incisions on Monday when I can take the "suture tapes" off :)
Db, good luck!! Physiotherapy worked really well for me until I re-injured it haha

I will confess to having a personal interest in your journey and recovery.

I've scheduled my knee replacement for the end of April. I'm simply out of other options (because constant pain, inability to sleep and not riding is not an option as far as I'm concerned.)

I'm depressed, scared and dreading it.

So I will be following your recovery with great interest!! I want you to have a terrific result for a somewhat selfish reason!

JDI - you are a strong woman. Before you know it, you'll have your beloved Denny back and will be riding stronger before you know it!

I am so happy things worked out for you, and things are looking better each day!
