The surgery is very helpful--necessary if there is a severe tear--but healing may be slow with EDS. Has an MRI been done to define exactly what is wrong inside the knee?|
: I am looking for other people's
: opinion. My 12 year old daughter is
: having problems dislocating her
: right knee this year. Has happened
: twice. So now the orthopedic
: surgeon suggests surgery. (he took
: a sample of the fluid in her knee
: today, and said that if it is clear
: it is fine, but if there is blood
: then severe damage has been done) It
: was blood. I am not sure what to
: think. He says that the operation
: should prevent dislocations (get her
: through the next few years) until
: she stops growing. This has also
: become a "quality of life
: issue" because it limits her in
: her life. There are only so many
: accomadations that people can make,
: schools, camps etc. She is missing
: out on things. I have EDS, but have
: never had knee dislocations. I want
: to hear from people who have had the
: operation, how long it works, any
: problems, and also what if we do not
: have the operation. Thank you for
: any help.
