Hi guys. I had my operation on 4 Feb and I am supposed to be 6 weeks NWB. I guess I am a little worried because on about 2 occasions I accidently stumbled after losing my balance and put weight on the leg. I was also wheeled into a couple of potholes which really jarred my knee. As you might expect – it really, really hurt. I supose I’m a little worried about this and hope it won’t have affected recovery.
Also – I am using a zimmerframe as I feel safer than when I’m on crutches. Everyone keeps telling me to use crutches and that it’s better for me than a zimmer whereas the physio said to do whatever feels best. What are your opinions?
Last thing.. and this is really worrying me. My physio has given me a week to be able to use my quads to lift my lower leg when a pillow is placed under the knee. I CAN’T DO IT. I just stare at my leg willing it to do something but it just lays there like a useless lump of meat. I am frustrated and worried that the muscle has just completely wasted away. Did anyone else experience this problem?
Thanks guys. Sarah xxxxx
