Ask ur OrthopedicDoc: Not to be rude but post-operative questions are best addressed pre-operatively by your surgeon. In other words, during pre-op consult, s/he should have explained the procedure, risks (infection, risk of worsening symptoms, pain, side effects etc), and expected recovery. Along those same lines, it's best to follow post-op recommendations of your surgeon, not someone not involved in your surgery.
