Prayer Request For Healing
07/23/04 | Codyjacksmom

Posted on 07/23/2004 10:59:06 AM PDT by codyjacksmom

I could use some prayers from my fellow FR Prayer Warriors. A little over a year ago, I had dislocated my knee cap. The doctor said if it happened again, they would have to go in and anchor it down. Well, yesterday it completely blew out. Just as I was standing up, my knee just "went" and my knee cap ended up on the outside of my leg. It stayed like that for 3 hours. I had to go to the hospital in an ambulance and it took the ER doctor 3 attempts of trying to jam it back into place to get it back into the front of my leg. I am resigned to the fact that I will need surgery. But this time there looks to be a lot more damage then the first time. I will be going to an orthopedic surgeon next week and I would like prayers that I haven't done any major damage to any of my major ligaments. Also for easing of the pain (pain meds do not work on me at all) and swelling and pressure to subside quickly. Thank you!!! And God Bless!

Prayers offered.

I've experienced some similar knee problems in the past that I thought were the result of a sports injury, but turned out to be caused by a minor defect in the way my legs grew as a kid (basically, one of my kneecaps doesn't quite line up properly). No surgery was required, and I learned that a rigorous exercise program will go a long way toward minimizing any future problems.

Good luck, and keep me posted on this -- I'd be interested to see how it gets resolved.

Been to see the Ortho. They are really good guys. (Well, mine was!)

Here is to hoping that what damage you did can be corrected with therapy and rest. However, if they have to scope it, be religious with the therapy. It really does help (even at the expense of wanting to kill your therapist!)

(I blew my knee in a basketball game in '89, and didn't have it scoped at the time. I paid dearly 7 months later!)

Prayer ping.

Please post your replies to codyjacksmom

codyjacksmom, My prayers going up now. I know your pain!! I have had 3 knee surgeries. It won't be 100% after the surgery. You will probably always have a week knee after this. But at least it shouldn't just snap out any more. I was told each surgery will last about 10 years. So far mine have only made it to 7 years before it had to be done again. Also, make sure to not over use the other knee! I did that and had to have surgery on that one now too. Take care! I will pray!! Starting right now!!

Bahbah, Johnny Gage- Thank you for the pings.

Blessings,
Trussell


If you want on or off my prayer ping list, please let me know. All requests happily honored.

Prayers for you in your pain.

(I know because I fell in my driveway last year and broke my kneecap.) It is now laced and pinned together, but I am healing quite well so there is hope for you!

Heavenly Father, we return to give You thanks that so many of Codyjacksmom's FRiends have offered their prayers and their suggestions ... may it be, Merciful Father, as we have prayed ... that Your healing hand would replace her need for surgery. Let the damage be truly slight, that her injury would respond to therapy and rest. Give the greatest wisdom to the surgeon that she will see ... lead both patient and physician in the way that You would have them go. Diminish her pain ... encourage her heart ... surround her with the love and prayers of her family and friends. In the Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen ...

Prayers on the way for a quick and successful healing.

My son completely blew his knee out in a sports accident. Everything was torn and he required a complete rebuild. The pain was excruciating waiting for the surgery to be done and healing, but he was able to heal beautifully. It was much quicker than the doctors had initially anticipated, he was back to work much faster and he has had no significant problems since the work was done. He has a video of the entire surgery....amazing to see a tiny little screw fill up the entire tv screen! His knee is every bit as good as it had ever been, thank God. I hope your experience is as positive and you recover quickly. My good thoughts are with you.
