Good to hear of your experiences. I am going to try and do some of those upper body exercises whilst I have to sit here. I have a 45 degree rotation on my leg brace so I do some gentle bends as instructed by the surgeon and I stretch and rotate the ankle to keep the circulation going. Bit worried about muscle wastage but can’t do much yet. I am as mobile as can be with a frame and crutches but never thought I would feel so tired after making myself a cup of tea! I do find that my foot swells after a period of mobility. Did you experience that? My knee is still swollen and feels hot but not too much pain at the moment.
Thank you for your reply. Good to know we are not alone.
