I'm 10 wks post TKR, walking unaided, driving, back to work last wk. Bend is 115-120 and flat was 0. Physio therapy signed me off 4 wks ago?!! Can self refer if need to. Saw on here how everyone is using an exercise bike so borrowed my brothers at the wknd, easiest setting and I had to higher the seat to get a semi comfortable rotation. Saturday was okay, Sunday okay doing approx 20 rotations 3 times a day, (really struggling with this exercise in fairness) yesterday I got to my 5th rotation and wham, only way I can explain it, is like I've trapped a muscle/nerve, can't now put my heel to the floor without a huge jolt of pain, used my crutches yesterday afternoon to get around not used them since wk 5. Off the crutches today but the walking is poor, and the pain is like being zapped by a tens machine on full blast, going slightly up my thigh and down to my heel. Really appreciate any help or suggestions. I've iced, took my meds etc. I'm in the uk and getting an appointment with either gp/Physio will be like pulling teeth.
