Stuck Surgical Instrument Is Hammered From Patients Knee
Thanks for this clip, it answers a lot of my own questions, just a few months ago I had my 2nd Hip replacement in my right hip, I have already had my left hip done so I am very familiar with the huge swellings that can happen after the opp, However straight after my right hip recently My knee swelled up enormously and looked freaky, It was red and hurt like fuck, I was kept in hospital longer as it looked like I had got another infection, anyways I was sent home around 8 days later and had home nurses help me for about a month, My knee stayed blown up for around 4 weeks solid, it is still swollen now but a bit more manageable.. anyways I finally got to speak in depth with my surgeon and he said that they had to take out a lot more bone than usual from inside my leg bone and he needed to bang the extra long anchor a long way down & that is why I had knee issues due to the shock beating my knee took during the fitting... I have read the comment before mine and I agree, I bet this guys leg is going to be pure agony when the anesthetic finerly wares off.. AWESOME VID
That's not at "stuck surgical instrument"! This is the perfectly normal procedure to remove a tibia nail. A tibia nail is a hollow titanium pipe that is inserted in the front bone (tibia) of you lower leg. This is done after a fracture that can not be healed by use of a plaster cast.
Inserting this tube is pretty much the same as getting it out: with a hammer, yet in the opposite direction.
I myself have a nail like this in my left leg (bike accident 10 years ago) and I'm not particularly looking forward to have it removed.
