Arctic Blast Review

por Editoria RVQ (2019-02-28)

Eventually I was taken to pre-op and had a Arctic Blast Review nice warm blanket put over me and then finally into the theatre itself. The anesthetist performed a Spinal Block and as she finished telling me how I would feel great warmth in my buttocks which would spread down my legs to my feet, numbing everything in its path, it started to happen. It was all very quick and very strong as I could feel nothing from my waist down. "It was like being a paraplegic in the bottom half", said Graham.The anesthetist then injected with me a lighter anesthetic thanks to the Spinal Block and I woke up some 3 hours later - my operation was longer as the surgeon had to fashion a new kneecap from the bottom of my femur which he assures me will make the whole knee stronger.I guess the hardest part after the operation was dealing initially with the Continuous Passive Motion machine which automatically bends your knee for you in two hour blocks to the degree dialed up by your nurse. I quickly dubbed mine "The Rack" because it was uncomfortable the first time I used it. But, believe me, it got easier each time and now, one month after the operation I have more then 120 degrees movement in that left leg!I can tell you that I attended a pre-admission clinic some weeks before my surgery and then, two days before the operation, I filmed the same clinic - it was absolutely amazing how much of the information I had forgotten.
