I had major back surgery and knee surgery on both knees. Will I physically be able to have a baby?

Yes

Those problems and treatments, in and of themselves, do not prevent a normal, happy pregnancy. Counseling on details is probably very important

Each hospital has different policies. Call the hospital and let them know about your plan. They may have rooms with an additional bed for a friend/family member.

I had knee surgery on both knees back in 2004 from a car accident, i haven't completely healed from it, what can i do do i need to take out the pins for better use of my legs?

I

I imagine that by saying that you have not healed you mean you have pain or some disability . First you need to see the orthopedic surgeon to make sure evry thing is ok. Then he will give you advice on what to do or refer you to physical therapy to strenghten your muscles . Taking out the pins is not ussually need, but sometimes after an appropiatte time or because of inconviniences caused by them they are removed

Is it common to have pain years after knee surgery? I was born "knock-kneed" and as a child had my knees and legs "reset" in an attempt to correct this. Now as an adult, my legs and knees ache tremendously especially with a drop in barometric pressure or

Sometimes

It sounds like you may have had surgical osteotomies as a youngster. You should have your knees xrayed to see if osteoarthritis has developed.

I've bruising still from knee surgery over 2 months ago. When will it go awau?

Soon

Knee_pain
Residual bruising from surgery 2 months ago should start to fade soon. Discuss with your surgeon and make sure he/she is aware of your concern. They may have a more complete explanation for the bruising. Sometimes skin pigmentation can be permanently altered by extensive bruising.

I had knee surgery to remove 20% of my meniscus 2 months ago. While doing therapy at days my knee has some bruising and is inflated. What should I do?

Be patient

Bruise
It is normal to have some swelling even 2 months after surgery such as a menisectomy. Make sure you follow the RICE protocol - rest, ice, compression and elevation. The bruising could be just overdoing it at therapy. If the swelling persists or worsens, make a follow up appointment with your surgeon.

I had arthoscopic knee surgery a month ago. My calf muscle is very tight and hurts when I walk. I now have 2 big bruises on the back of my leg.

Blood clot?

Bruise
I would be concerned about a blood clot. You should get checked with a venous Doppler study asap

I had athroscopic knee surgery, acl recons. and meniscus 5days ago. Ankle is now swollen and bruised, I believe hematoma. It is very painful. Danger?

Hematoma

Bruise
following acl surgery especially if your own (autologous) bone patellar tendon bone graft is taken swelling, bruising in the ankle is not uncommon. just make sure that you are not having any sharp calf pain where a doppler ultrasound would be helpful to be performed to rule out a blood clot.

Dr. John R. Ayres answered:

What is arthroscopic knee surgery?

Camera assisted work

Knee_x-ray
Arthroscopic knee surgery involves operating on the knee to remove, repair, or replace different injured structures without making big incisions. A small 1/4 inch incision is made first and a small camera the diameter of a pencil is inserted into the knee to look around. The inside of the knee is observed on a TV screen while the procedure is carried out through additional small incisions.

What is arthroscopic knee surgery like?

Knee arthroscopy

This is a procedure that is minimally invasive with a lot done through 2 small incisions: work on meniscus, loose bodies, and various cartilage procedures. Some arthroscopies are also done to reconstruct a torn ACL or correct patellar tracking. Usually full weight bearing immediately, crutches for a few days, improved pain, and return to function in a few weeks, depending upon procedure done.
