What is the recovery time for a microfracture knee surgery?

3 to 6 months

Knee_surgery
The first six weeks after micro fracture surgery, patients are asked to use crutches and protect weight bearing. After that, progressive weight bearing is introduced, and range of motion is achieved in the second six weeks. The third six weeks is focused on strengthening, and the 4th 6weeks is geared for sports specific training.

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.

What can I expect after microfracture knee surgery?

Varied

Knee
The response to microfracture knee surgery is varied from person to person and is directly dependent on size and type of cartilage lesion. You may require a CPM, and may be 6-8wks strict non weight bearing. If the microfracture is under patella, a brace may be required and ROM restricted in the beginning stages. Discuss specifics with your surgeon to gain a better idea of your recovery.

When can I hike after knee surgery? I need to go for arthroscopic knee surgery for meniscus repair. I'm planning a vacation in three months to do some moderate hiking. Am I being too optimistic about the recovery period?

Hiking afterscope

Extremity-joint-knee
Most people are functioning well by 3 months after arthroscopy for a meniscus tear. For ligament injuries it is a different story!
