Injections

Aim of Injection

Injections of the knee are done to see if pain is coming from the arthritic knee or from an arthritic hip or back


In Hospital

Scratches / Cuts
- If you have any scratches, cuts or the like on your leg when you are admitted for surgery then your operation may be
postponed if Mr Lavender believes that these will pose a risk to you getting an infection at the time of your surgery

Consent
- Mr Lavender will come and see you when you arrive. He will get you to sign a form (Consent Form) agreeing to the
injection and explain the risks of the surgery

Discharge
- Normally, your surgery will be done as a day case, being admitted and discharged on the same day. You will require:
- To be brought to hospital by car
- To be taken home by car
- Someone to be in the house on the night of the operation
- A telephone at home

Walking
- You can walk with all your weight on the injected leg as soon as you return to the ward
- It is very important that you do as much as possible in the first few hours after the injection to see if it removes the
pain from your knee


Rehabilitation

It is very important that you keep a record of how the pain changes after the injection


Follow up

Mr Lavender will normally see you at 2 weeks after the injection
