My poor hubby fell off a roof 11/9 and had Kyphoplasty 11/12.
He also has a shattered heel, so his progress will be a lot slower because he is limping around on crutches.
The doc said that DH had such strong and healthy bones, it was hard to insert the cannula, and that would account for more pain post surg.
He will need more surgery to reconstruct his foot.
Does everyone think this amount of post surg. pain is normal? Keep in mind he was in a severe fall and was fortunate NOT to break every bone in his body, and he is using crutches, etc.
I read on this site that most all of the patients who have the procedure are in almost no pain in two days, but won't that type of response depend on the cause of the injury as well?
Anyone have any experience with the Kyphoplasty aftrer a fall or accident? Anyone have experience with a lot of pain post surg.?
I apologize for any weird sentences, I am sooooooo tired![/QUOTE]
Did he have the kyphoplasty? how is he doing now? I fell thru an attic on June 20th and am thinking of doing it. Would he recommend it? Any long term effects of the surgury?
