Total Knee Replacement Surgery Pre-Op

Getting ready for a total knee replacement, for me, was a pain in the royal derriere (butt). Here’s why:

  • I couldn’t take any of the herbs that were a part of my daily routine.   Western medicine wasn’t sure if they would fit in.  Western medicine needs to catch up with reality.
  • I couldn’t take any aspirin, of which I usually take  daily.
  • I had to have self-blood donations of 2 pints.  The blood center caused me much distress.
  • I had to take iron supplements,  which I did not like.
  • I had to take a blood thinner the night before surgery.  It caused nausea.
  • The literature on what to eat, not eat, and drink is confusing and contradictory – as is the info on supplements.
  • Each pre-op process for a total knee replacement starts two weeks prior to surgery.
  • I attended a total knee replacement class.  The only benefit of this was actually seeing the knee implant.
  • I was told that crutches were too much work and that I needed a walker for a while after surgery.  This was stated during the total knee replacement class.  I did not agree with that.
  • I got all my dental work done prior to surgery.  Ugh!!!  However, my dentist is a hockey fan.  And, his brother is the orthodontist for one of the NHL teams. Cool!

I had to go through the process two times (donating 4 pints of blood) due to my surgeon getting sick and cancelling the first surgery.  The second surgeon was great.

Even with all of this, I have no regrets over having my surgery.  There is no joint pain now.  What an entire relief!
