Knee Replacement Scars

Badges of honor from knee replacement surgery

month for left knee, 3 months for right knee. not too bad. There is a stitch coming through on the left knee you might can see it. Bending both at 130 degrees. Can't wait until they are fully heal.

Picture taken looking down while sitting: Right knee (longer scar) was from Cartilage Transplant Surgery in 2000. The TKR scar that was done in 2008 is imbedded in the long scar and hardly visible. The left knee is from my recent TKR surgery seven weeks out, and seems to be healing nicely. What a difference!!! Various smaller scars are from scopes and lateral releases & surgeries done throughoutt the 1990's.

My badge. TKR 6/21/11

One day after surgery.

My knee at just over 8 weeks. It's looking pretty good, if I do say so myself.

I had LTKR on Dec 8, 2011. I had 15 staples and the incision is about 6". I am 'now' 4 weeks post op and still have my butterfly stitches on...but from what I can see in between....the scar look very good. I'm quiet impressed...so far. :biggrin:

Newest pic of my knee showing the really small hole with scab left to heal. Can we say YEA!
