    Default Two Week Post Op Update......

    First I want to thank everyone for all the thoughts and prayer for my knee revision surgery two weeks ago. I had my first follow up appointment this afternoon and things went great. Cleared to drive whenever I feel ready..... off crutches whenever I feel ready...... hoped to get that staples out and guess what?! No stapes and no stitches. When they removed the dressing there was this really cool zip tie adhesive closure holding my incision together. Came off like peeling off a bandage. Strangest thing I have ever seen and soooooo much easier than staples. I am a happy camper this afternoon!!

    YES! Happy to hear about the new way of closing the incision ... sounds a lot less painful.

    Oh cool! I saw a video of that type of closure. It was pretty neat. Has to beat the heck out of staples.

    Ok, I had to go find it. No blood, so no one should get grossed out.

    Praise the Lord! I guess now you're kinda a bionic woman! Neat about the non stitches.

    Congratulations. I hope you have a fast and easy recovery.

    Karen, thanks for the video. I sure could have used that 2 years ago.
