A question for the nurses on the forum?
#1
I have been doing some research on the surgery I will be having, Mohs surgery.

The information I have search says to let the doctor know if a patient's had a recent knee replacement in the last 6/12 mo.

Does having a recent replacement casue problems when having the type of surgery I will be having?

I don't want to cause any complications with the recovery of the replacement. I do realize I need to have this surgery.

Thanks
Bummer Knees

Hi Bummer....I can't answer your question. I am not sure why it is recommended to tell your doctor if you have had a knee surgery. I can't even think of any connection at all....maybe one of the hospital nurses will have had some experience with this type of situation. Love Red

Bummer- I am not sure why your knee surgery would effect the surgery on your face but it might have to do with needing to bend down not over when you come home, as well as the blood thinner given when you had your knee surgery Hopefully someone else can give you better information. But make sure you talk it over with your doctor before suregy and take a complete list of all your medications with you there may be some that will need to be stopped up to a week before hand. Good luck and I will be praying for you.
May God send his angels to hold you in his arms

Bummer, I know your answer;

Anytime you / or anyone have any type of a Implant Surgery, your inform the Doctor and the Surgeon. This way they will or might wish to Pre-Medicate you Prior any Surgery. Your are also to do this before your allow a Dentist to perform work on your mouth also.

The reason is, any infection will rush to the Implant areas of the body.

Thanks Bad Boy.

I should of addressed this thread to the nurses and Godfather of the forum.

That makes sense, I wondered if it had to do with the need for antibotics or other meds.

Red, Bummer , and all my Nurses, I just knew the answer because I had been told this with my Fusion's, and with my Knee Replacement.

Also when the Card came for the Knee Replacement, it states to also show the card to Security and also any and all Doctor's. That every Doctor and Dentist shuldw be advised that for now on, Pre-Medication might or should be affective ways of proper treatment.

If your going to have your Teeth cleaned, that is very important then to pre-medicate if you have Implants.

The Card comes about 6 months after by the maker of the Joint for the knee. All information will be on it.

In dental work and in skin surgery there will be a transient increase in `bacteria carried into the blood stream which can infect heart leaflets in those with a history of rheumatic fever and patients with joint implants a seeding of bacteria into the artificlal joint. Hence the recommendation for antibiotic prophylaxis in those circumstances.
