Re: Pvns - knee
Mar 17, 2015
Thank you for the response. Yes I am seeing an Ortho oncologist. She will make the large 'S' incision on the top of my right calf and work up the bottom of my thigh. The location of the tumor could not have been any more "perfect" in making it difficult to remove!!! Thank you also for the duration of recovery for you.. I am an Algebra teacher.. so I am on my feet all day.. I hate to be out that long, but I also hate the pain and hassle my knee gives me...

Did you have all the pain, stiffness, knee buckling?? The buckling part is what is becoming more frustrating.. there have been times I am standing for maybe 5 minutes then suddenly my PVNS knee will buckle out... I'm sure I look very awkward to my students...

I'm scared about this type of surgery, but ready for it also... surgery date is April 3rd, only 2.5 weeks left...

It's been a week since I had posterior excision (aka 'S' incision)surgery to remove the tumor from my knee...

The tumor was only barely attached which explains why my knee would buckle and lock all of a sudden. The OO said the tumor was also much deeper in my knee then she thought and was worried she hit a nerve.. but I think the numbness I am experiencing is considered normal??

My numbness is along my Achilles and around the outside of my foot.. did you experience any numbness or tingling after surgery?? My dr said this sometimes happens, but goes away in a couple of weeks.. just wanting to hear some experiences...
