The other day I was watching a Korean drama, the elder mother was diagnosed to be suffering from worn out knee cap n underwent knee cap replacement surgery, recovery takes up to a month. The DIL was telling her MIL that many of her mum's friends had the operation n now they live a normal life.

Not sure whether such knee cap replacement is available in Sg.

Have. My MIL had done 2 times knee cap replacement on the same leg. The first one gave her even worse pain after surgery. That specialist was not experienced :mad:

After that she changed the specialist so the 2nd one is ok. :smile:


Please give me the contact details of these specialists. We never know when we will need them :please:

MIL's first operation was in SGH. She didn't choose the orthopaedic surgeon so we think maybe the surgeon was not experienced.

The second operation was done in Tan Tock Seng under Dr Sarbjit Singh. He has since moved to Mt Elizabeth. MIL is very happy with his work :smile:

For the wrist injection, I did it in Mt Elizabeth. The orthopaedic specialist was already old at that time so I don't think it is a good idea to see him for injection. It's better to find younger one.

no more bandage after the 3rd night as I developed skin rash.

Jen, if you want something to prevent your wrist from moving, you may want to consider buying wrist guard. There are many wrist guard out there so must find a comfortable one but with enough support. Usually the fabric is washable so it can be kept clean. :smile:

I have one custom made by a physiotherapist but I found that off the shelves ones are more comfortable.

Jen, when your wrist recovers, do some wrist strengthening exercises. Those stress balls are rather useful for such exercises.

Wrist like ankle, once injured, will be prone to further injuries as the joint is weakened already.

Some suggested exercises

I will like to add on my own experience. I kinda "sprained" my left wrist during the process of getting my cabin bag out during a flight to Seoul. It hurts badly. I put on my 3M Silhouette Wrist Support which kinda hold the wrist in place without further adding pressure to it. So far, i find this is one of the better ones although it may be more pricey. Sorry to say i do not know what happened to your wrist but i will go back to your threads to find out.

:thankyou: :thankyou:

about the wrist guard, will it cause skin rash?

I can only take plasters for sensitive skin, and cant leave on for too long either.

So far so good for me leh. But again Porky has a thicker layer of skin(fats) so it doesnt bother Porky. Try it out. I have 35% discount if you want to buy. Disclaimer : Porky is not a sales person and do not draw any commission from selling. Purely doing Porky's frens a favour!
