Hi to all
It sure does help to read what others are going through and know I am not alone. I am 17 weeks out since surgery and am still having many of the same issues. I try to see the positive because yes I have made improvements however I am still only @ 90 degree bend. Ankle swells anx hurts along with knee pain. I am walking with a cane and just the last couple of days feel confident enough to do the baby steps unaided.
My current anxiety is the manual stretching at physical therapy! I hate it!!! I cry uncontrollably. Almost to the point I am afraid to go and I know that’s the worst thing because I’ll just stiffen up more!!
I did use heat prior to going this morning and it helped some I think, at least my physical therapist said it was a really good stretch.
Anyway thanks again for all your comments.
