Hi folks. About 3 years ago I had to have a RTKR …. they’d tried everything else … meniscectomies, shots, everything. The surgery went well, til I got home (alone) and fell. It must have jarred something because it was a problem for the next year. All that was left to do was to have a Revision, which I did a year ago. It has worked beautifully and the only time I notice anything is when the weather is going to get bad and the barometric pressure drops. I saw my O.S. this week and he warned me (again!) that if it ever feels warm, to get to the doctor or ER immediately. I cannot take a chance with any sort of infection in there. I take 4 – 500 mg. Amoxicillin before every dental procedure, but he really leaned on me to not mess around with any type of cold, or anything that could become an infection anywhere …. get to the doctor. He said the appliance is very large, which I knew, and I need to take good care of it …. which I do. Everything he said, I already knew except for the concern about the sinus, bronchitis concern, but he sure made the hair on my neck stand up. I feel like I should ride around on a little tricycle enwrapped in pillows! And I was going whitewater rafting this coming summer …. first time in over 4 years! DRATS!
