I’ve been FWB since the 30th of June. Did great on that day, went to see ortho using a cane, by the end of the day my leg hurt so much I was back to the walker and used the walker for the next day or so. And that’s the way it’s been since- use the cane, leg hurts, back to walker. Here’s my question: should I be using the cane more, suffering through the pain, will this help in the long run or set me back?
I have fairly good ROM-up to 90% , good flexation. Still doing my leg lifts 200 or more every day and stretching the hamstring out. Don’t have too many problems with leg strength. I expect I’ll be going to PT at the end of the month after my next appointment with ortho.
I just don’t know if I should be pushing this more than I am. Any suggestions or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
