My ‘DonJoy’ Post-Surgery Cold Therapy Unit Started Leaking Day #5!.

by Anura Guruge

It was this pad that was leaking — at the bottom.

I had my quadriceps tendon repair surgery,
at ‘
Frisbie Memorial Hospital‘ —
performed by Dr. Charles Blitzer
of ‘Seacoast Orthopedics
on Thursday, March 7, 2019.

Day #8 today.

Pain is still negligible!

I had told my surgeon, just a few hours earlier, that I had become addicted to this unit. It was doing a great job mitigating the pain. I had not needed any narcotics. Just this unit + Aleve/Tylenol at standard dosing.

Five days after surgery they had removed the pad, for the first time, when they took off my original dressing.

It started leaking as soon as I put it back. To say I was distraught would be an understatement.

Amazon couldn’t get me one for a week.

I lucked out. My wife went back to the hospital, next morning, while I was still asleep. They gave her a new pad. That was magical. Really helped.,

I am still icing my knee, though not as much as before. Learned that too much might not be too good. So, in moderation.
