Your Doctor Recommended Knee Replacement. Now What?
Chances are if knee replacement surgery is a possibility for you, there have been ongoing issues with discomfort in your knee. There are instances in which knee surgery is performed in response to a sudden and unexpected injury, but most of the time pain develops and worsens over time. The number one cause of knee replacement surgery is osteoarthritis.
If your doctor has recommended knee replacement surgery, what do you do next? Make sure you have a thorough discussion about the procedure and what is required of you. Make sure you understand the risks and know what to expect in the weeks following the procedure. And unless you are 100% sure you want to go through with the operation, seek a second opinion. Your doctor should never be offended by your requesting a second opinion. Most of the best doctors expect it and appreciate having a second professional input.
Once you have made the commitment to knee replacement surgery and you are ready to move forward, what happens next?
Checking the Risks
In addition to understanding the overall risks of surgery and specifically, knee replacement surgery, you will need to be evaluated for risks that affect you. Choosing your knee replacement device is an important part of your surgery, and you and your doctor can discuss your options in depth.
Preparing for Surgery
Once you are officially cleared for surgery, your doctor will review with you what needs to be done in the days and weeks leading up to the procedure. You will likely undergo an MRI and other tests to ensure you are healthy enough to be put under anesthesia. You will also be provided with instructions for what you should do in the hours leading up to your surgery. It might seem like a lot of information, especially if you are anxious about the procedure, so if possible, enlist a loved one to help you review the list.
Recovery and Rehab
Finally, you will be given instructions for what to do after your surgery. This will include prescription medications to ease your pain and help your body fight off infection. You will also need to participate in physical therapy. This speeds your recovery and helps you regain strength and mobility. Physical therapy is an essential part of your recovery and you should be prepared to participate, both in the therapist’s office and at home.
