One of my dear curious blogging friends asked, "Well, what's the knee look like NOW?" I was chronicling it in all it's ugly glory early on, before the complications started.
So, here you go, here's what it looks like now, I don't know how many weeks post-surgery. It's been through an awful lot and the oversized scar is my badge of something (bravery? stupidity?) It is not a typical total knee replacement scar because I already had some pretty large scars on my knee from surgery 40 years ago, and they had to jog over to the side to incorporate one of those into this one, so as to not pull on the old scar tissue. A plastic surgeon was in the OR to close up after the surgery was done. I think he did the very best he could with what the orthopedic surgeon gave him, the work done was pretty extensive. Also, I had told the surgeon that I really, honestly, didn't care what the outside looked like afterwards, just get the inside parts right. My modeling days are long gone anyway.
LOL in the picture it is beastly looking!! I guess it is a pretty big one. I have had large scars on my knee since I was 17, so I've gotten pretty used to that and this one will not bother me any more than those others did. It's just another sign that I'm doing it all up quite well, using the parts that God gave me to their fullest extent.
