I was wondering if anyone could tell me how often follow up appointments are after knee arthscopy surgery? I have had complications due to infection. I went to ER twice over it and seems like ER doesn't want to touch surgery patients. They give antibiotics and that is it. I had surgery Dec 15th.

Petronila I was told to use sterile pad and use ace bandage. They gave me red brace to put over it so it don't slip. I wasn't able to keep on until now. He told me its superficial wound. I had to go ER. It hurt so bad last week. Pain was so bad if I would move my leg I couldn't stand it. It was also pink and hot. Once ER gave me antibiotics its been draining since the 26th.

Looks like you got some good care today and should feel better real soon. Poor kid, it looked so painful.
