Exclamation My friend post surgery - January 1st 2014, 04:49 AM

Hey guys,
So my friend just got an intense knee surgery like a replacement of acl. I was seeing how he's doing and he told me that he's bleeding through the stiches and bandages. Is this normal side effect? He doesn't know if this is supposed to happen.


He got the surgery just this morning if that helps.

It's normal and it's all part of healing. However if it bleeds way too much it would be a good idea to ask the nurses to check again.

Hope he has a speedy recovery!

Yeah. He should let his nurse know and they will reinforce the dressing. The surgeon or his residents have to be the one to change the first dressing though to ensure that the incisions are healing properly.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's fairly common. However, if it continues to bleed and doesn't seem to stop, I'd have one of the nurses check on him.

Hope he recovers soon!


I love you to the moon and back.
