My ‘DonJoy’ Post-Surgery Cold Therapy Unit Started Leaking Day #5!.
It was this pad that was leaking — at the bottom.
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.
