Well I cant believe I’ve got this far from the first 6 weeks where I could hardly move my knee and I’m thinking ‘what have I done’!!!
I have worked my socks off, from knee lunges to squats to cycling, swimming, power walking, standing on 1 leg (bad knee) and taking the dog for a walk and anything else that has been thrown at me.
I have never been a great gym person but have found that if I want to get better and back to normal you have to put the work in.
When I first saw my physio my knee bend was 84 then it went to 105, then 110 and now it’s 118 degrees.
I can go up and down stairs, power walk and now learning to run again. Knee still weak so it’s more like a crab running.
Anyway guys what I’m telling you all is, we have to put the work in if we want to get back to living life to the full and not limp around like monkeys.
Dont forget to Ice knee after all exercise and if it aches try Nurofen plus.
When I get into bed at night I find Voltorol very good, rub in and around knee and also the back of the knee and leg, but not over the scar.
Without reading your messages, I would have given up weeks ago, so thank you.
