    KNEE UPDATE:

    So not long out of theatre and had a vac dressing fitted to my knee. Basically its a dressing that has a small pump attached that sucks all the air and any build up of crap out of it. Fingers crossed i get to go home tomorrow.

    Unreal eh. Especially as it means you can't work and the government will do fuck all to help you out since your self employed.

    How is the pain? Hopefully the clean up and antibiotics do the trick this time.

    Definitely a lot more pain this time round but i think thats to be expected after 3 ops in 5 weeks.

    Financially its been a hard kick in the nuts but we have been lucky enough to get the kids xmas presents early.

    Hopefully mate they gave it another clean out and put a lot of stitches in it this time so i cant move it anywere near like before so i reckon that should help the healing a lot more.

    Guessing it will take a bit of time for the swelling to ease off. Glad to hear it is healing well

    The swelling is a lot less that it has previously which is a good thing but will be a couple of weeks still.

    The 2 big knots in the top are keeping the skin pulled to my knee so that theres no empty space for any fluid to build up the only problem with that is it doesnt allow the skin to slide naturally over my knee when it bends so range of motion is shocking lol.
