I'm having surgery for maltracking (lateral release medial pattellfemeroral reconstruction and autograft on hamstring) what should I expect?

Bracing & therapy: Bracing is usually warranted after patellar stabilizing surgery. Physical therapy is also important to help regain motion & strength. Your surgeon will have a specific rehabilitation regimen for you to follow for the 6-12 weeks following surgery. The layerl release decreases the tethering affect on the outside of your knee, and the mpfl reconstruction prevents patellar subluxation/dislocation. ...Read more

I'm getting surgery for compartment syndrome. They are going to release all compartments of the lower leg. They are only doin one leg. How long is the recovery? Crutches? Sports?

I'm getting surgery for compartment syndrome. They are going to release all compartments of the lower leg. They are only doin one leg. How long is the recovery? Crutches? Sports?

Not much: A few concerns: almost never necessary to release "all compartments". Exercise induced compartments syndromes are compartments specific. One would determine which compartments are the cause by doing compartment pressure measurements after exercise. Crutches until it feels good. In my experience return to sport in 4-6 weeks. ...Read more

What could a risen on female body, top of crease of leg and pubic hair be? It feels with blood and after it gets so sore, it releases blood?

Probably infection: a painful lump that fills up with fluid in that area is likely a cyst formed by infection of an oil gland that has become infected, and is now the scene of a struggle between your immune system, and the infection. Hot compresses with herbs like comfrey are the old fashioned way. Consulting your doctor and possibly antibiotics would be a very good idea. ...Read more

Yes, to reduce pain: I'm trying to understand. It seems like at least one like has had multiple interventions for compartment syndrome with resultant nerve pain in foot drop.
