Total Knee Replacement

In a total knee replacement, both of your knee joints are replaced. It usually takes 2 – 3 hours for the procedure to finish.

Your surgeon creates an incision in front of your knee exposing the knee cap. It is then moved to the side so the surgeon can access the knee joint behind it.

How Your New Hip Is Different

You will feel a certain amount of numbness in the skin around the incision. You will also feel some stiffness, specially with excessive bending. These issues usually disappear with time and almost all patients find these are small in contrast to the pain and restricted functionality they experience before the surgery.

Bowel Incontinence

Bowel incontinence, also known as fecal incontinence, is an inability to control bowel movements, leading to the involuntary passage of fecal material.

This condition differs from patient to patient. In some cases people feel an abrupt, urgent need to go to the toilet, and incontinence happens since they can’t get to the toilet in time. This is called urge bowel incontinence.

Other people experience no sensation before passing stool, referred to as passive incontinence or passive soiling, or they may pass a tiny bit of stool while passing wind.

Urinary Incontinence Treatment
