In January 2018, I underwent a Tibial Osteotomy at the One Hatfield Hospital in the UK. I had been suffering from the onset of arthritis on my right knee and needed a solution that would avoid a knee replacement operation and get my life back to some level of normality.

As a follow on from last weeks blog, I am sharing photos taken from pre-op to 6 weeks after. During the process of finding the pictures after 12 months and knowing that I am much better now, it does bring memories back of the journey of recovery and change. When you are in the moment, it is tough but as I noted in a previous blog, the human bodies capability to repair is incredible. The is light at the end of the tunnel!

Day 3- 5 Swelling and bruising


#After 3-5 days, expect bruising and discoloring to appear – the healing process

Days 6-8 I want to remove the bandaging!!

So in total I have 16 metal clips. Awesome!

Days 14 Metal Clips are out

Removal of clips are not that painful. Now I can think about Physiotherapy

Week 5-6 and the wound is healing well!

Healing in progress and Physio kicking in.

I hope the helps you out there. If you have any questions shoot me a message. See you next week!
