Knee hematoma after knee surgery?

Can be normal?

Extremity-joint-knee
You haven't really given much information here. Minor hematomas can be normal and managed with heat, compression and observation. Larger ones may need draining. I strongly recommend you se your surgeon sooner rather than later to avoid unwanted complications!

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.

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

Yes

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

Talk to the hospital

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.

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.

Dr. Greg Hicken answered:

Is arthroscopic knee surgery painful?

Not particularly.

Extremity-joint-knee
Most arthroscopic knee surgery is not too painful and can be controlled with mild narcotics, anti-inflammatories, ice and rest. Arthroscopic ACL and PCL reconstructions are more painful but still routinely done as outpatient surgery.

What should I do before knee surgery?

Physical therapy

Physical_therapy
There are, of course, many different types of knee surgery performed. Before surgery is even considering, a course of conservative or non-operative treatment including physical therapy is strongly recommended. Even if surgery is recommended, pre operative therapy can help get your knee and thigh and leg muscles in better shape- this will help you recover quicker from your surgery.
